A spectacular evening of dance was hosted by Sir David Tang in the Paul Hamlyn Hall at the Royal Opera House on September 19. This event was the Foundation’s official launch and was a gathering of supporters, dance enthusiasts, celebrities and friends of Carlos’s and Sir David’s. Carlos performed two pieces, initially a classical pas de deux accompanied by Roberta Marquez, followed later in the evening by a contemporary solo. The evening was a great success showcasing the Foundation’s project in Cuba and helping to raise much needed funds.
A dinner was hosted by Sir David Tang at the Box in Soho on 13 June 2011 to introduce the Carlos Acosta International Dance Foundation to potential supporters. Lord and Lady Foster were among the invited guests and the event was the catalyst for Foster + Partners’ involvement in our first project. During the evening Carlos also performed, to the delight of the guests.
