92Y January Ballroom Party

92Y January Ballroom PartyTonight we premiered our newest routine, “On a Slow Boat to China” by Kay Kyser and His Orchestra at the 92Y Ballroom Party. For this new piece, we were greatly inspired by Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse’s “Dancing in the Dark”, a beautiful routine exploring the possibilities of a partnership’s connection and showing that intimacy can be created even in the absence of physical contact. The moment we saw Fred and Cyd perform this routine, we knew that we had to pay tribute. We look forward to sharing a video of our performance soon, and until then, please enjoy this elegant, graceful, and intimate performance that redefined connection performed by  Mr. Astaire and Ms. Charisse in Central Park:
