Extraordinary . . . Mysterious . . . Dazzling!
Jabbawockeez’s new “Prism” show combines break-dancing, gymnastics, martial arts and several other elements into their production.
Using music and dancing to tell stories has been a form of entertainment for centuries.
The “Prism” dance team follows the traditions of the ancient Greeks, Thai, Egyptians and other peoples around the world.
In many of those traditional dances the hands tell the story but in “Prism,” the troupe also uses their bodies in a frenzy of motion, color and lights.
The audience is mesmerized by the series of laser streams.
The dancers perform split-second complex routines.
This high energy show requires exact precision.
The choreographer has created original dance numbers, each as breathtaking as the other.
The audience must wait to see what is coming next.
The producers have created their own art form, a thing of beauty.
The signature white masks and gloves are a continuation of the original Jabbawockeez show.
The new showroom’s auditorium is raised for enhanced viewing.
It was designed and custom-build so the audience is above the stage.
Established in 2003, this young professional dance crew has developed a one-of-a-kind style and culture setting new standards in the industry.
Just five years ago, Jabbawockeez was discovered on “America’s Got Talent” former judge Randy Jackson’s “Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew” on MTV.
Jabbawockeez won Season 1 and went on to quickly become the sensation of the Las Vegas Strip.
Jabbawockeez became the first dance crew to headline a show on the Strip with “MUS.I.C.” at the Hollywood Theater in MGM Grand in 2010; the show later moved to Monte Carlo in the theater formerly headlined by magician Lance Burton. After a successful run at the Monte Carlo, Jabbawockeez has now moved to the Luxor Resort for the opening of “Prism’s” production show.
The name is derived from the fictional creature in Lewis Carroll’s poem, “Jabberwocky.” Known for creativity, unique choreography, athleticism and intricate synchronization, the Jabbawockeez are poised to change the way we see dance.
Get ready for the Jabbawockeez experience. Do not look away or you might miss an important part of the show.
This is a show for the whole family.
