Ballets With a Twist Brings COCKTAIL HOUR to New Jersey This October


Following a smashing summer season and a sold-out benefit performance with special guest Cyndi Lauper, Ballets with a Twist, the hot next generation ballet company, has announced New Jersey performance dates for its intoxicating evening of dance, Cocktail Hour.

On October 4th, Ballets with a Twist will serve up a taste of its signature show to the Rahway, NJ community for the city’s first annual CULTURE CRAWL, produced by the Rahway Arts District, a non-profit organization dedicated to establishing Rahway as a regional hub for arts and culture. The company will present two selections — “Scotch on the Rachmaninoff” and “Return to Normalcy” — on the mainstage of the Union County Performing Arts Center (1601 Irving Street) at 6:15 pm and 7:45 pm. Following the intoxicating affair, the company will continue its cultural invasion with a meet-and-greet at Rahway’s Patria Restaurant & Mixology Lounge (169 W. Main St.)

Ballets with a Twist will provide another sneak peek of Cocktail Hour at 6 pm on October 11th at the Rahway train station plaza. Aria Bistro and Bar, located directly across from the train station at the Hotel Indigo, will provide refreshments with an extra shot of culture for fans of the arts and rush-hour commuters alike. The company has invited a team of young Twisters – children from the Rahway area – to join them on the stage, making this a fun, family-friendly affair.

Later in October, Ballets with a Twist’s full performance of the Cocktail Hour suite will be featured as part of the Hamilton Stage (360 Hamilton Street) 2012/2013 inaugural season on Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27 at 8pm and on Sunday, October 28 at 3pm.
