Stars of Royal Ballet to perform in gala fundraiser for displaced Ukrainian dancers

Stars of the Royal Ballet are to perform in a gala fundraiser for Ukrainian dancers displaced by the war in their homeland, the BBC reports.

Children from dance schools across Dorset and Kintbury School of Ballet in Berkshire have been invited to watch renown soloists perform at Dorset's Athelhampton House this weekend.

It is the third fundraiser organised by dancer Meaghan Grace Hinkis.

More than 50% of funds raised will go to support Ukrainian dancers.

Concert-goers were hoping to see Ukrainian dancer Marianna Tsembenhoi perform a new piece set to music inspired by the war but the BBC has reported that she is injured.
