A day-long festival of world-class dance featuring new works and audience favourites from big-name artists and breakthrough talent in ballet, contemporary and hip-hop dance styles.

After an exceptional year we were delighted to bring together talented artists and ambassadors from around the world in a varied programme celebrating the beauty and joy of dance.

The Sadler’s Wells Global Gala was broadcast on YouTube and included performances, sketches and messages from our global family, all in support of the theatre. All funds raised were matched and will contribute to the full reopening of our theatres and the return of our artists and audiences.

The Global Gala included appearances from:
