Standing with Ukraine one year on…

On the anniversary of the devastating war in Ukraine, we look back at the dancers who came together in a show of support and performed at the Stand with Ukraine – Ballet for Peace at the San Carlo Theatre in Italy last year. This fundraising gala was organised by Artistic Director Alessio Carbone, who brought so many incredible dancers together on stage.

The dance community and dance lovers continue to support fundraising efforts by performing in and attending galas and buying tickets to The United Ukrainian Ballet as they continue to tour.

Don’t miss upcoming performances in March of Dancing in Defiance, a unique triple bill featuring the work of today’s leading choreographers; Alexei Ratmansky (Wartime Elegy), Jiří Kylián (Falling Angels) and Sol Léon and Paul Lightfoot (Step Lightly). 

Stand with Ukraine – Ballet for Peace Gala featured world famous dancers from around the world, captured by dance photographer Luca Vantusso:
