Aside from its 40th anniversary, the Nevada Ballet Theatre
has another reason to celebrate: it's collaborating for the fifth year with Cirque du Soleil
. Choreographers from both groups combine their talents to bloom as bright colors and daring moves on the stage. Two choreographers talk about their inspirations, and what happens when Cirque and the Ballet combine forces.
"A Choreographers' Showcase" takes place June 9-10 at 1 p.m. at the Aria Resort and Casino.
