This year’s 19th annual Las Vegas Dance in the Desert Festival happily returns to the Summerlin Library Performing Arts Center. Festival director, Kelly Roth, conveyed excitement and no small amount of appreciation concerning the venue: “We are thrilled to once more be partnering with the Library District! Summerlin is a wonderful location with an ideal stage for experiencing dance as an art form. We couldn’t ask for a more supportive staff with which to collaborate!”
