Dear Friend,

Collaboration is at the heart of what we do, and this month we are excited to share some incredible examples of how Malashock Dance partners with other arts and culture organizations to provide incredibly unique experiences. Many of you attended our production of Perpetual (E)motion in April, and witnessed first-hand the versatility and world-class talent of our Company dancers. This month, our dancers will perform at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park and at the Institute of Contemporary Art North in Escondido. Thanks to the support of the NTC Foundation, Malashock Dance and Outside the Lens are offering a free dance photography workshop and culminating exhibit for students in grades 8 - 12. We are thrilled to have over 25 schools and 50+ classrooms participating in our Math in Motion program in schools throughout San Diego. Wow...that's a LOT of ways to engage with us, but if you want even more, check out our "Malashock Recommends" section this month to see what some other amazing organizations are offering this month!

Warmly, Molly Puryear, Executive Director
