'Love 2 Dance' takes final curtain on Nov. 27 at South Point


"Love 2 Dance" closes out its appearances for the year at the South Point with a show at 3 p.m. Sunday.

In addition to regular ticket prices starting at $25, a limited number of premium tickets are available for groups of 10 or more at a discount.

The creation of husband and wife team Michael Kessler and Melinda Jackson, better known as M&M, features a cast of professional dancers that take the audience on an intimate journey through their most cherished memories, highlighting their passions, struggles and triumphs.

"Whether you're partial to modern or ballroom dance or have two left feet, everyone can enjoy this funny and touching production that details an original look inside the lives of dancers," Kessler said.

"Love 2 Dance" features 18 top dancers and choreographers from prominent shows on the Strip including "The Lion King," "Phantom -- The Las Vegas Spectacular," "O," "Vegas! The Show" and "Jubilee!" as well former shows "Lido de Paris" and Radio City Music Hall.

Dancer Kellie Pryor said the show is a combination of the love of dance, comedy, tragedy and how the dancers persevere. "Many of the dancers have explored the world of dance through different styles, while having to overcome life's obstacles," she said.

In fact, the production is a personal one for Jackson and Kessler, who not only wrote, produced, directed and choreographed it, but star in the show as well. One vignette shows how Jackson and Kessler first met in ballet class in New York City and how their dancing led to friendship, love and their partnership. It was in 1987, after their first show together in New York City, they formed M&M American Dance Theatre and began their first world tour.

Since that time, their careers have included producing, writing, directing, choreographing and performing with their company.
