Cocktail Hour: the Show


You’ve never seen ballet like this! From coast to coast, Ballets with a Twist® is turning heads and setting trends with its signature production, Cocktail Hour: The Show™. Watch as Mint Julep, Manhattan, mocktail Shirley Temple, and more spring off the menu and onto the stage in a series of dazzling vignettes. Suitable for audiences of all ages, the fun and fast-paced show transports theatergoers around the world with original choreography, music, and costume design.

Created by artistic director and choreographer Marilyn Klaus, Cocktail Hour: The Show™ melds the glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Age with a sleek, state-of-the-art sensibility. Elegance, electricity, and all-American energy combine in a series of delightful dancing drinks. It’s high-style entertainment for the whole family!

Program highlights include “Champagne”—A glittering ballroom bubbles to life in this silver-screen dream.
“Manhattan”—After a big-city evening, a socialite steps out with her dearest companion.
As they stroll past each lamppost on Park Avenue, a jazz trumpet echoes the mood of the changing skyline.
“Mint Julep”—Sophisticated fillies leap toward a photo finish on a breeze of bluegrass and southern hospitality in this Kentucky Derby story.

Ballets with a Twist® soloists will hold workshops at the Schauer School of the Arts during the week of the October 5th performance. You may even see students appear with the professionals onstage during the show. In addition, company members will join Happy Dance Hour on October 3rd as Salsa instructors.
