The CDT, the legacy company created to honour Tony Wilson, founder of The Company Dance Theatre, held its second annual gala on Sunday at The Courtleigh Auditorium in Kingston. The two-hour event featured performances from more than three groups. It saw lovers of the arts and supporters of the CDT come out in comfort and finery to enjoy the performances and give back to an organisation and founder who has given so much. Something Extra has the highlights.
