This centre is the initiative of the two European charities, Anno’s Africa and One Fine Day, and provides arts workshops to hundreds of children from disadvantaged communities.

The dancers, led by Nick Jones and Julia Bergua from Les Grands Ballets Canadiens of Montreal, include Alexander Jones (The Zurich Ballet), Ji-Min Hong (Royal Danish ballet), Oliver Jones (Staatsballet Oldenburg) and James Lyttle and Diana Leon from the Montreal company. They will perform pieces from some of the world’s favourite ballets. There will also be music and dance performances by the Kibera Arts Centre children.
