DANCE company Motionhouse, internationally renowned for their dance-circus performances, will have top billing when they appear at a charity dinner and auction in Leek Wootton in April.
Founded in Leamington in 1988, Motionhouse will be giving a short live dance performance at Leamington Rotary Club’s annual charity dinner at Warwickshire Golf Club on April 1.
The dance company, which has created a range of work for theatres and outdoor performances across the UK, Europe and beyond, was founded by executive director Louise Richards and artistic director Kevin Finnan, the choreographer and movement director of the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
Rotary organiser Colin Robertson, said: “We have been extremely lucky in getting Motionhouse to appear for us, and many thanks go to Junior Cunningham, Motionhouse rehearsal director, who will be our guest speaker.”
The dinner, which has attracted speakers such as television news presenters, the CEO of Sainsburys and the captain of the Queen Mary II, raises thousands of pounds from the event each year for local charities and international relief programmes.
The evening will include an auction, held by Warwickshire estate agent and auctioneer James Hawkesford, and will feature a weekend in a Cornish hotel, a morning with breakfast on the gallops at Richard Phillips Racing in the Cotswolds, an hour in both a Spitfire and a Boeing 737 flight simulator at Warwick Flight Experience, a grandstand day at Warwick Races, rounds of golf at Leamington and Copt Heath and many other auction lots and raffle prizes.
Tickets are £40 and are available from Colin Robertson at 07703 484070 or by email [email protected].
