New York City-based Ballets with a Twist is excited to announce its fall touring season to Arkansas, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. The company will tour to ACANSA Arts Festival of the South (Little Rock, AR) on September 23, The Imperial Theatre (Augusta, GA) on October 28, and Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center (West Chester, PA) on December 29.

Ballets with a Twist’s signature show is Cocktail Hour: The Show. Created by Artistic Director and choreographer Marilyn Klaus, Cocktail Hour: The Show combines the glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Age with a sleek, 21st century sensibility. Elegance and all-American energy combine in a series of sparkling vignettes. With historical flair, wit and panache, these dance cocktails are inspired by events and eras across an evolving cultural landscape. Watch as “Bloody Mary”, “Martini” and more spring from the menu and onto the stage. It’s high-style fun for all ages.

The company will continue its commitment to education with master classes planned in Little Rock and Augusta. For more on Ballets with a Twist’s community engagement, visit the company’s website.

Klaus, whose choreography has been seen internationally, formed Ballets with a Twist in association with Grammy-nominated composer Stephen Gaboury and costume designer Catherine Zehr. Her company has appeared in a wide range of venues throughout the country, from Cleveland’s Playhouse Square and New York City’s Beacon Theatre to Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and the Tribeca Film Festival.
