Leading lights from theatreland, the dance sector and the Barnes family came together to pay tribute to Thea Nerissa Barnes’ legacy in dance at the Lyceum Theatre, London, on August 12. Barnes dedicated her life to dance, gracing audiences internationally with her bold, strong, yet gentle presence, as well as teaching and transferring her knowledge to assist others in gaining from their own learning experience.
