Melena Rounis, a Cirque du Soleil dancer currently in “The Beatles LOVE,” will be groovin’ into the Rock Center for Dance on Jan. 24 for a one-time hip-hop master class. Rounis has organized the Step Up and Dance fundraisers for several years running, is the co-founder of Drive Dance Centre in Vancouver and is an excellent source for old-school funk — and lots of energy — in Las Vegas. (Find out more about Melena at her website here.)
The class is $15 and runs from 2-3:30 on Tuesday, Jan. 24. Be there and get your groove on!
Hey, Cirque fans! If you’re interested in knowing more about the iconic entertainment company, check out Cirque Week, a series of behind-the-scenes demos and discussions of all things Cirque du Soleil. (Ticket information and a schedule is available here.)
Company executives chatted about what it takes to keep a company like Cirque going. Participants checked out costumes up close, watched rehearsals of bungee routines from “Mystere” and saw exclusive footage of the Cirque mother-ship in Montreal. These are a few examples of the breadth of programming Cirque has put on to let superfans get to know the company better.
The 10-day series is almost over, but stop by Best of Las Vegas to see my coverage of a few of the events. There’s nothing wrong with living vicariously, right?
