Sizzling | Sensational | Seriously Fun

San Diego Celebrities are paired with professional dancers.

They Dance. You Vote. Just like TV.

On Saturday, October 9th, San Diego’s local celebrities will hit the stage in an all out competition of stamina, talent and determination. Malashock Dance has brought together some of San Diego’s finest to put together an exciting and sexy event. The audience will be entertained by the very funny Monique Marvez, our Comedian Host, as they sashay their way through deciding upon this year’s winning male & female Dancing Superstars live with their hand held devices. Our San Diego Celebrities will spend weeks training for the live competition in front of their peers and special guest judges.

“This year’s lineup of stellar celebrities reflects the diversity of our region and all our contestants are in it to win it: ready to put on a sizzling hot show. The lives of close to 40,000 children thus far have been served by Malashock’s outreach programs, and we hope to continue to transform the lives of San Diego’s under served children,” said Event Chair and Judge, Yolanda S. Walther-Meade.

Malashock Thinks You Can Dance will take place at the classic Birch North Park Theatre, October 9th. The VIP reception will be held adjacent to the theatre at the West Coast Tavern beginning at 6:30pm. The competition and show will start promptly at 8pm with a chance to meet the dancers at the post-show wrap party for all attendees.

Individual tickets are $50 – $150 depending upon seating section. $50 tickets are limited due to seating availability. For more information, visit the website at
