A local dance school is set to honour the memory of their late student, Ana Kriegel with a very special fundraising event this month.
Dance LA will donate all proceeds from the event, titled Together for Ana, to the charities Thuras le Cheile and Russian Irish Adoption Group in honour of Ana.
Their students will perform along with their very well-known colleagues in the industry- Johnny Ward, Linda Martin, Paul Byrom & Sarah Ternan – who have generously offered their time and talent.
LA Dance school founders Lorna and Adele Dempsey told Dublin Gazette how important Together for Ana is to everyone connected with the dance school.
“We are coming together as a Dance LA family, we are coming together as a community, we are coming together to showcase a night of entertainment to celebrate our love for Ana,” they said.
“We feel it is important for our students to know they can give back and express themselves.
“The best way they know how is through their talents.
“We wanted to facilitate that by giving them a platform to do so.”
Ana was a beloved student of Dance LA for 10 years.
Her tragic death has been both shocking and devastating for her family, friends, the students and for Adele and Lorna, her teachers.
This year has been a struggle, but they have had the love and support from their families, friends and the community of Leixlip.
Together for Ana takes place at The Confey GAA Club, Sunday, October 27, Evening show 7pm and are priced €18 (service fee applies) @ www.eventbrite.ie.
