In a nutshell
An eclectic programme of performances brought to you by Rich Mix staff and special guests, to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis UK!
LauraDDances is raising money for Multiple Sclerosis UK, a charity that supports the condition she and many people in the UK and worldwide suffer from. The event will bring together artists that work at Rich Mix, to showcase their talents and to raise money for a charity that has helped so many people deal with all stages of the condition.
'Finding My Strength' is a song written as a collaboration between Rich Mix staff members Junior Williams and Laura Dajao, and will be the focus of the night. The song was written specifically for LauraDDance’s piece 'Missing', an emotional piece of dance that is about the trying emotions of losing something important and aspiring to deal with it. The song will also be released for sale.

The night will consist of live music acts, a contemporary dance piece, belly dancing, some live performance and a guest dance performance by Step Change Studios. Topped off with a live performance of 'Finding My Strength' and DJ Psykhomantus on the decks to play the night out!
