Night Moves Membership (Ages 30-45)

2017-18 Night Moves Membership details coming soon!

Details: For 2016-17, you can still get a deeply discounted Night Moves ticket for any subscription performance for 54 dollars – that’s 20 dollars off the regular priced A-category ticket.  PLUS, you’ll still be invited to exclusive after-parties. Meet and mingle with the dancers and company, sample specialty cocktails, and dance to the live mix by a talented DJ.

Just call the box office 250-386-6121 to book & pay for your tickets, and then pick them up on the night (or earlier if you prefer.)  You’ll also need to provide your email address when you purchase your tickets so we can send you the party details!

Restrictions: Night Moves tickets are available for second night performances only (Loge and Premium seats excluded); there are no refunds; if you need to exchange a ticket to Friday night, you will have to pay the Adult Subscriber price as Night Moves tickets are not available on Fridays; you must show photo ID when you pick up your tickets.  Night Moves tickets only available in-person or by phone order.
