Las Vegas and Seoul, South Korea, might be a 13-hour plane flight apart, but for the last dozen years dance has brought them closer together.

On Friday and Saturday, 20 students from Korea National Sport University combine their talents with counterparts from UNLV for joint dance concerts in Las Vegas. Later in the month, 20 UNLV students will travel to Korea and perform the same show, called Together 7, at the Gangdong Arts Center in Seoul.

Along with the dance performances, the exchange students from both universities receive a  cultural immersion and study in master classes.
