U.K. self-storage operator Big Yellow Group PLC is sponsoring a youth dance show on July 2, with all proceeds to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. More than 100 children and teenagers from the London dance school Fancy Footwork will perform “Alice in Wonderland” at New Wimbledon Theatre.
“I am so thrilled to see so many of my students reaching out to help others less fortunate than themselves,” said Lucy Clay, founder of the dance company. “This is a professional production that offers an innovative and highly creative narrative, bringing Alice’s magical journey to meet the Queen of Hearts to life.”
The two-hour performance will feature classical ballet, tap, modern and jazz, and showcase “the next generation of talented dancers,” Clay said. Tickets are £25 and available by e-mail at [email protected]
“We recognize the incredible value initiatives such as this brings to the local community,” said Anthony Chenery, head of marketing and e-commerce for Big Yellow. “We share the school’s vision to engage with the arts at a grassroots level, and are delighted to support this dynamic theatrical production involving so many gifted and generous-spirited young people.”
Big Yellow Group operates 89 self-storage locations in the United Kingdom under the Big Yellow Self Storage and Armadillo Self Storage brand names, with most concentrated in Greater London. Its total portfolio comprises 5.3 million square feet.
