At the threshold of his 25th season as a dance leader in San Diego, John Malashock, renowned choreographer and artistic director of Malashock Dance, won his fifth Emmy in 10 years for Outstanding Achievement in Choreography at the 36th Annual Pacific Southwest Regional Emmy Awards ceremony held Saturday, June 16, at La Costa Resort.

Malashock earned the award for his dance film choreography in “The Floating World (TFW),” a dance and video production, directed by John Menier, which premiered on UCSD-TV in June 2011. TFW combined Malashock’s talent with Tara Knight’s video projection, Zoe Keating’s music, and Zandra Rhodes’s costume design.

The performance was created in conjunction with the San Diego Museum of Art’s 2010–2011 exhibition “Dreams and Diversions: 250 Years of Japanese Woodblock Prints.”
