THE OFFICIAL MAGAZINE OF
NEW YORK CITY'S BALLETS WITH A TWIST

"The group of classically trained ballet dancers will perform a series of vignettes based on cocktails to original music. The Martini gives a nod to one of the most famous martini drinkers, James Bond. The “recipe” for the dance includes “one blonde bombshell, two super spies, one big band and a shake,” according to the group’s website.
The Mai Tai dance features animation. The drink and dance have an island vibe, and a volcano in the background adds to it.
Holy Water is one number the group hasn’t performed in a while, but Klaus said the dancers had to perform it in Augusta because the music has a gospel feel with a little bit of funk.“It will be our finale in Augusta,” she said. “It pays homage
to Mr. James Brown.”"
