Dance Tuesday Night

Tuesday Night Dance Classes return to Segerstrom Center

Broadway’s Lauren Lim Jackson will teach iconic moves seen on the Great White Way in such hit shows as Chicago, Memphis, Motown and Pretty Woman. Jackson, who hails from Orange County, has credits including Finian’s Rainbow, Wonderland, Memphis, Motown the Music and Pretty Woman the Musical (coming to the Center in the 2020-21 Broadway Season). No experience is necessary – the Argyros Plaza is strictly a no-judgement zone. Tickets: $10 per person and spaces are still available.

For Movie Nights, all movies will be closed captioned. Ticket prices: $20 for pods accommodating one to three people, $30 for pods accommodating up to four people and $40 for pods accommodating up to six people. Guests are advised to determine the maximum number of people they anticipate attending to ensure the pod can accommodate the entire party. The Center will call you prior to your event to verify the number attending in your pod. Set-up begins at 5:30 p.m., with the movie starting at 6:30 p.m.
