Los Angeles, CA, United States (AHN Entertainment) - In the second installment of the onstage event that combines the incredible talents of two groups of entertainers and artists, the award winning casts of "The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers" (THE LXD) and "Glee" will perform together in this summer's "Glee Live! In Concert" tour.

The casts of THE LXD and Glee first collaborated during last year's original "Glee Live!" tour.

The original web-based series was created by Jon M. Chu of "Step Up 2", "Step Up 3-D" and "Justin Beiber: Never Say Never" fame and showcases the astonishing athleticism and artistry of the dancers involved. The series has successfully completed two seasons, which are now available on DVD, and the cast is currently promoting the upcoming and highly anticipated third season.

"I am thrilled members of THE LXD cast are once again joining the 'Glee Live! In Concert!' tour, as it is yet another incredible opportunity to showcase stories through dance," said Chu. "Our performance will feature the extraordinary talents of some of the world's best dancers taking audiences on a thrilling, unforgettable journey of discovery."

Harry Shum, Jr., a cast member of both THE LXD and Glee, created and is the artistic director for this year's collaboration along with Christopher Scott. Choreography was done by Galen Hooks and Aakomon Jones.

You don't have to wait for this summer to see the "extraordinary" dancing on THE LXD. The first two seasons are available online on Hulu, iTunes, Netflix, Joost and Voddler, while the trailer for season three is on www.thelxd.com now.
