Win tickets to the Dance Theatre of Harlem


FINAL UPDATE: We have our third winner: Sharon Alford-Oakley.

UPDATE: We have two winners so far: Cindy Wathen and Iris Badillo. The good news is that I got my hand on a third pair of tickets to give away. The bad news is that our original winner never responded to the two emails I sent. So I picked another winner at random and am waiting for confirmation.

ORIGINAL ENTRY: If you’re a fan of contemporary ballet, you won’t want to miss the Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble’s 7:30 p.m. Friday performance at the Saroyan Theatre. Though I’m sure dance connoisseurs will find a lot to like about this concert, it also sounds as if it will be good for “beginning” fans and kids. That’s because the company has an educational/interactive philosophy toward the program. The audience will get a chance to meet the dancers, and a narrator will introduce each piece and give a little background.

I have two pairs of tickets to give away to the event — all orchestra seats, Row N.

Enter by leaving a comment on this post. No repeat comments, please. You’re ineligible if you’ve won something in the past 30 days. You’ll need to pick up your tickets at The Bee’s front lobby by 5 p.m. Friday. Complete rules after the jump.

Deadline is 10 a.m. Thursday. Please, if you enter this contest, be sure to check your email late Thursday morning to see if you’re a winner.

Does anyone remember the last time Dance Theatre of Harlem came to Fresno, in 2002?

Please choose me!

I only just recently discovered the world of blogs, and I have to say you’re quickly becoming one of my favorites. Great post and look forward to seeing more from you.

I love that Fresno brings in all this talent for our enjoyment!

I would love to be able to present these tickets to a teacher at our studio so that she can take a young man to the performance who might not get to go otherwise. Carl Cubero is 14 and is a gifted and talented young dancer. Carl does it all: ballet, jazz, contemporary, hiphop, and excels at all. He needs to see other gifted and talented men who are living their dreams of dancing professionally and fulfilling their artistic potential. Please consider helping me make his day (and his teacher’s day as well!) by choosing to give them some tickets. Thank you!

Would love to see this. The last time I was privileged to see a ballet was in LA to see Rudolph Nuryev. Amazing.

Sharon says:

Hurray for Fresno, bringing great entertainment and variety for all to enjoy! I’d love to bring my Daughter.

Lisa says:

My boyfriend is from the East Coast and has missed a lot of opportunities for culture here on the West Coast lately. I have always heard incredible things about the Dance Theatre of Harlem, and this would be just the pick-me-up for the two of us to share together with our busy schedules. We aren’t able to see a lot of the great things that come to Fresno, and I’m constantly having to remind him that it’s here, we just don’t get to see it….hopefully now he can see it!!! I would love these tickets. We could dress up and really enjoy ourselves. Thank you!!
