The ADAM dance association and the Hortensia Herrero Foundation have been holding a dance charity gala every year on the last Saturday of September since 2014. This charity gala, called ‘Somos Arte’ (We Are Art), is aimed at bringing the Valencian public closer to internationally renowned dancers, and great artists of the Valencian Community that work with different companies abroad.
At the ‘Somos Arte’ gala, different classical and neoclassical pieces are performed, as well as choreographies by one of the most illustrious Valencians in the dance scene: Nacho Duato, who has always awarded us with some of his compositions. Additionally, the cast of the gala consists of important dancers from some of the best dance companies in the world. Daria Klimentova, Alicia Amatriain, Lucía Lacarra, Elisa Badenes, Jason Reilly, Tamako Akiyama and Marlon Dino, among others, have participated so far.
The Gala is under the artistic direction of the former dancer and Valencian dance teacher Gema Casino Penalba, and all proceeds of the Gala will go to charity.
