Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Nevada Ballet and Cirque du Soleil are getting ready for their 5th Annual Choreographers' Showcase at Aria this weekend.
Action News sat down with one of the choreographers to talk about why the event is designed to encourage artistic growth in Las Vegas.
Jordan McHenry has been dancing his whole life, and started with Cirque two years ago. Now, he's one of the chosen dancers for the Choreographers' Showcase.
"I felt extremely grateful to be chosen," McHenry said.
The showcase is a collaboration between all 7 of Cirque's shows and the Nevada Ballet. The acclaimed production features more than 50 dancers and 11 different numbers.
