This performance was an amazing honour, giving us the opportunity to pay our respect to the amazing Nelson Mandela as he unveiled his statue in Parliament Square. It also gained us our most treasured quote ever, passed on to us by then Prime Minister Gordon Brown!
“You were amazing–Nelson Mandela wishes me to pass onto you that he thought you were enchanting!”
Christine Alaby was one of the dancers on the event: “Performing as a dancer for the unveiling of the Nelson Mandela Statue in Parliament Square was an honour. Seeing Mr. Mandela smile as we approached towards him, I felt overwhelmed with excitement and delight.”
