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.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
