Promoting dance as an avenue for personal expression
through participation, education, and artistic collaboration.
In 1988, building on his extensive career in dance and theater, John Malashock founded Malashock Dance & Company in San Diego, California. Malashock Dance is an active contributor to the vibrancy of San Diego’s cultural life, and provides professional concert dance performances, training, and education outreach programming for thousands of individuals each year. Its incredible team of teachers, staff, and dancers have local, regional, and national impact and provide life-changing programs for individuals from all walks of life.
While the Company’s focus is to highlight the power of artistic collaboration and showcase the unparalleled talent of the professional dancers, the organization’s education programs are designed to create access to dance for under-served students, low-income families, individuals with disabilities, and promising pre-professional dancers that may face financial barriers.
The Malashock Dance School was founded in 2007, and offers a full spectrum of dance classes that cater to beginners through advanced and professional level dancers. Camps, workshops, Master Classes, and summer intensive programs engage students from around the world, and provide a comprehensive educational experience for dancers of all ages and abilities. The establishment of the School complements the Company’s performance activities and greatly expands the Company’s reach and connection to the community.
