The dance creations of Jabbawockeez will be celebrated in a new Las Vegas theater when the troupe moves to the Luxor Hotel and Casino starting May 18.

When it opens in the new, 830-seat, amphitheater-style venue, the group will deliver a revamped production that will incorporate chart-topping music and original tracks by the Bangerz, the company’s own recording artists.

The dancers don white gloves and expressionless masks to shift the audience’s attention away from individual performers and toward the unified group. Together, they create artistic imagery through intricate moves.

The dancers will have new costumes when they hit the stage of the purpose-built theater, complete with new sets and a sophisticated sound system.

Jabbawockeez, champions of MTV’s “Randy Jackson Presents America’s Best Dance Crew” -- were the first such group to headline a show on the Strip. Beginning in 2010, they performed at the MGM Grand and, later, at the Monte Carlo.

Tickets, priced from $55, are available online beginning Friday. There will be 7 p.m. performances on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays, with additional 9:30 p.m. shows on Fridays and Saturdays. The production will be dark on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
