Win tickets to a special evening of dance at Selma Arts Center

Selma Arts Center has been known for some wonderful choreography over the years as part of its musical-theater productions. Now, in a special two-night fundraiser led by Michael Christopher Flores, you’ll get a chance to focus on dance itself.

“Memory: An Evening of Dance” will be performed Friday, Aug. 5, and Saturday, Aug. 6. A beer and wine social hour will start at 7 p.m. with the performance at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12.

Flores says he is “all danced out” after dancing with a company in the San Diego area, but he’s choreographing several numbers and coordinating the production.

Along with Flores, choreographers are Jacob Moon, Glenda Stewart, Damen Pardo and Annelise Escobedo Lyman. There will be nine dancers in the show.

Says Flores: “Sometimes joyful, sometimes painful, always personal, these choreographers have created routines that explore the deep chasms of memory, telling individual stories through various styles of dance and creating a show that explores the ways we are all connected through our lived experiences.”

If you’re a member of The Munro Review, you can win a pair of tickets to either performance.


The contest is open to members, donors and individual sponsors of The Munro Review. The winner will receive two tickets for any time and date during the show’s run. (See below for performances.)
