Have you ever thought the arts to be inaccessible? Have you ever thought it too costly to expose your family to a live dance performance? Have you ever thought that dance could only be enjoyed with an extensive understanding of its history or context? Have you ever wished the Temecula Valley had more opportunities to see the performing arts? Have you ever wanted to see a live dance performance, but didn’t want to make the drive to San Diego or Los Angeles? Have you wanted to see a show, but didn’t feel like pulling out the tuxedo or formal wear? Did “So You Think You Can Dance” peak your curiosity about the world of dance?
If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you should consider attending the next Dance Moves community performance project in Temecula at the Old Town Theater. Affordable, accessible, and full of diversity, this program is suitable for the whole family. Typically lasting for about an hour and a half, you won’t have to sacrifice your whole evening, but if you’re so inclined, Old Town Temecula does offer an abundant selection of restaurants with tastes suitable for every palate.
In this past Tuesday evenings’ wide array of performance, dance ranging from classical ballet excerpts from the Nutcracker to Argentine tango was performed. With the offering of such a diversified program, there was more than enough variety to capture a broad audience. Accessibility to the audiences is a crucial part of these community performance projects brought to the theater by Peter Kalivas of the PGK Project. Front row seats place the audience on the same stage as the performers. The dancers’ movement is not the only intimate aspect of these performances. The community involvement is also close at hand. Raffling off tickets from local businesses, including upcoming performances at the theater itself, is another aspect of the local community that Kalivas has brought to this event. Used not only as a marketing tool, but also a networking opportunity, the Dance Moves program seamlessly intertwines the performance to the population.
So whether you are simply curious about seeing a live dance show for the first time, or growing tired of driving to another metropolitan area, the Dance Moves monthly performance at Old Town Temecula is sure to satiate. Taking place on the third Tuesday night of the month at 7pm, you are sure to find a fun filled evening of culture and dance. A $5 suggested donation at the door is an unbelievable price for the live dance show that waits.
