Manuela Veronese and F.A.M.A at the Children for Peace Gala 2011

Manuela Veronese and her dancers


All the members of the Marbella Marbella Adelante website team, wish to thank the hardworking, imaginative and highly gifted Manuela Veronese  and her superbly talented children who provided all the guests at The Children for Peace Charity Gala, a special evening of entertainment as her numerous young dancers gracefully performed a number of intricate and unusual dances.

It was a colourful, positive tour de force and an enjoyable experience for those who watched this part of the Gala especially, those of us who knew how much of herself, personal sacrifice and determination she put in to this childrens’ show to help this Rome based charity free of any charge.

We fully recognise and acknowledge this generous gesture and applaud Manuela for her outstanding support, as well as her dance school FAMA who provided the talent on display and much of the visual material to make this show come to life.

Debbi Mace the President of The Children for Peace brought to Marbella around fifteen Palestinian children to dance at the her event and Manuela skillfully intergated them into her show.

Italian born Manuela, who is the owner, director and driving force of this exciting school of dance, is a highly experienced dancer in her own right, as she was a professional dancer and teacher at the respected Academy of Ballet of the Goethe Theater in Bremen, Germany.
She was trained in her art, by some of the best dance teachers not only in Europe, but in the USA, such names as Hans Kresnik (Choreographer) Martha Graham (a pioneer of contemporary ballet) and Art Hutchinson (Ballet dancer of Wilmington, Philadelphia.)

She was with the corps de ballet at the Bremer Theater with choreographer Hans Kresnik in tours in Poland, Warsaw and Danzig, and Germany, Stuttgart, Hamburg.
