Dear Friend,

What a difference a month makes! At this time last month, we were just starting rehearsals for Everyday Dances II. Nothing existed, except high anticipation to begin creating on the part of all nine choreographers. Since then, the creative engine has been running hot here at Malashock Dance, and all of the new works are in their final phase of refinement. But the last phase of finishing new choreography is putting it in front of the audience – YOU!

Performing dance in front of an audience changes the work subtly. Brings it into focus. Draws out the expressiveness. Heightens the impact. It is one of my favorite things, to experience the birth of new art as a communal experience.

I truly hope you will get to join us for this amazingly varied show by a collection of San Diego’s best choreographers. The works are all quite different from each other, yet somehow absolutely belong together. Come check it out for yourselves, and be the final part of our creative process.


John Malashock, Artistic Director

Funder Spotlight: Lynn G. Fayman Fund for Dance

Malashock Dance offered a series of workshops this summer thanks in part to support from the Lynn G. Fayman Fund for Dance. The workshops introduced professional dancers in the San Diego community to new ideas, techniques, and styles. We hosted 4 instructors, 23 students, & a professional drummer over the course of the series. Thank you to the Fayman family for continuing the legacy of Lynn and Danah Fayman through your support of our school and outreach programs. 


We know that you want to see quality dance that represents all of us for years to come, and now is the time to ensure that it is possible. Your donation or pledge will support fresh, innovative choreographic voices. Your participation will lead Malashock Dance into the future. Thank you to our generous donors who have already committed to helping us reach our goal to fund a THOUGHTFUL transition to new Artistic Leadership!
