Manhattan Cocktail Classic

Manhattan Cocktail Classic - Samantha and Brian

We had a blast dancing at the Manhattan Cocktail Classic with Roddy Caravella and His Canarsie Wobblers last night! The New York Public Library transformed into an incredible venue of live music, fun dancing, and of course, cocktails. It is always a pleasure performing to the tunes of Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra and sharing the dances of the 1920’s including the Animal Dances, Peabody, Collegiate Shag, and a household favorite, the Charleston. But our favorite part of all may have been the intricate 1920’s fashion we donned for the evening, coordinated by Roddy Caravella himself and his wife Gretchen Fensten. Gretchen is an incredible milliner and crafted each headpiece of the women’s costumes, along with headdresses for other performers of the evening, The Dreamland Follies. We highly recommend you take a look at her work!
