Two powerhouses of movement arts, Orlando Ballet and Cirque du Soleil, join forces tonight for a one-night only spectacular, squishing together into one big pirouetting troupe – exactly like that time that Marvel and DC squished their universes together and combined Wolverine and Batman into the slightly more-badass-than-either Dark Claw. This critically acclaimed partnership – Orlando Ballet and Cirque, not Marvel and DC – has yielded two previous collaborative events, and we hope there are many more to come. Look for the new works debuted tonight to take advantage of the big-top atmosphere of the titanic Cirque du Soleil La Nouba tent that dominates the west end of Downtown Disney. No trapeze acts are scheduled, but with the talent represented here, you’ll feel like dancing on air anyway. 

7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 23 | Cirque du Soleil, Downtown Disney West Side | 844-513-2014 | drphillipscenter.org | $25-$45
