(NBT) and Cirque du Soleil announced that their fifth annual collaboration, A Choreographers’ Showcase: A Project Designed to Stimulate and Encourage Artistic Growth, will be presented on June 9 and 10 at 1 pm at the ELVIS Theater, ARIA Resort & Casino, CityCenter. 

A Choreographers’ Showcase began as a premiere collaboration between NBT and Cirque du Soleil on December 2, 2007 at Treasure Island Hotel & Casino. This collaboration creates an avenue of growth for local performers while providing the Las Vegas cultural community with a dynamic and completely organic dance experience. This yearly partnership has raised NBT’s visibility on the Las Vegas Strip while enabling Cirque du Soleil to further root itself in the local cultural community.

Now in its fifth year, this critically-acclaimed production will include encore performances from previous years as well as original choreographed pieces. Performers and staff from all seven Cirque du Soleil shows will participate in creating this year’s event.

“We are proud to present the fifth edition of our unique collaboration with Cirque du Soleil,” said NBT Executive Director and CEO Beth Barbre. “Working and creating together, the artists of NBT and Cirque have been able to develop performances of surprising power and diversity. They have broadened their horizons, deepened their artistic skills and inspired each other and the community.”

“At Cirque du Soleil, we believe that beyond our own creations, it is essential to help showcase our artistic community,” said Karen Gay, Director of Global Citizenship for Cirque du Soleil. “It is with this in mind that Cirque du Soleil’s Cultural Action was born over 10 years ago. The company supports more than 100 artists and artistic institutions annually in various ways and is involved in many cultural development organizations and programming like A Choreographers’ Showcase.”

Tickets for A Choreographers’ Showcase can be purchased for $20 and $40 by calling ARIA Show Reservations at (702) 590-7760 or via online at www.nevadaballet.org. Purchasing a premium $40 ticket will provide guests with preferred seating while supporting NBT’s Education & Outreach Program, Future Dance. All proceeds from the collaboration benefit NBT’s professional company productions, dance training and education and outreach. Tickets are a tax deductable-charitable contribution.
