Malashock Dance is pleased to announce a fabulous new twist to their 5th annual fundraiser, Malashock Thinks You Can Dance! – A Night at Studio 54, at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, March 10.  The entertaining fundraiser will be held at the city’s premiere supper club and music venue, Anthology, in Little Italy.  All proceeds benefit the artistic, education and outreach programs of Malashock Dance.

Initially inspired by TV’s “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Dancing With the Stars,” this year’s Malashock event takes inspiration from Manhattan’s legendary nightclub Studio 54 with all its glitz, glamour, and celebrity guests ranging from Mick and Bianca Jagger to Liza Minnelli, Halston, and Grace Jones.  Studio 54’s infamous “velvet rope,” from which the doorman turned away disgruntled luminaries such as Warren Beatty, Diane Keaton, and Woody Allen, while allowing “beautiful nobodies” to mingle with the  glamorous celebrities inside, will be in operation.  However, Malashock guarantees that no one will be turned away.

The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception and the opportunity to bid on luxury silent auction packages with fabulous trips to exotic locales along with dozens of other items.

A three-course dinner will be served at 7:30 p.m., with entertainment provided by powerful company dancers performing Malashock’s signature emotionally charged choreography.

Dinner is followed by a special performance by one of disco’s all time favorite divas, Grammy Award-winning recording artist Thelma Houston, best known for her hits “Don’t Leave Me This Way,” (Best Female R&B Vocal Performance 1977), “If You Feel It,” “Saturday Night, Sunday Morning,” and many others.

The evening wraps up with general dancing to master Southern California DJ Boris Granich’s special playlist of hits from the ‘70s and ‘80s. Granich’s career has included stints at radio leaders KROQ and POWER 106, as well as remixing and producing.

Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling (619) 260-1622.  Anthology is located at 1337 India Street in Little Italy, San Diego.
