Meet English National Ballet Senior Principal dancer DARIA KLIMENTOVÁ and other stars of the ENB and Royal Ballet at our exclusive free signing event!

English National Ballet Senior Principal Daria Klimentová will make a personal appearance at the Central London branch of Dancia International on Saturday 12th September.

The Czech born prima ballerina is to be joined by fellow ENB dancer Désirée Ballantyne (Soloist), and Melissa Hamilton of The Royal Ballet at the 'Meet The Stars' event presented by Dancia London and ballet wear makers Grishko.

The ballet stars, all of whom are dedicated wearers of Grishko pointe shoes and Grishko ballet shoes, will meet fans and sign autographs at Dancia's flagship Covent Garden shop from 3.30pm.

Klimentová has worn Grishko pointe shoes for fifteen years; "They are made especially for my feet, so I don't have to do much, except sew the ribbons, the edges of the actual pointe shoe, and later on I use shellac to make them even harder- but they last forever."

Building on the best traditions of the famous Russian ballet companies Grishko has become renowned around the world as a supplier of functional, quality products. Their pointe shoes, in particular, offer amazing aesthetics coupled with comfort and durability. All Grishko's pointe shoes are handmade and can be customised to suit the individual dancer even better.

Dancia London, which is the capital's premier Grishko stockist, is offering 15% off Grishko pointe shoes and all other Grishko products all day and customers spending £50 or more will also get an exclusive free gift.

Dancia Director Beverly Kirkup says: "We are incredibly proud to give Dancia London customers a rare opportunity to meet and be inspired by some of the world's greatest ballet stars this September."

Saturday 12th September from 3.30pm, only at
Dancia International London!
