DWTS Tristan MacManus And Anna Trebunskaya Bring “Magic” To Winnipeg, Canada In Ballroom With A Twist – Review
What a wonderful ‘Ballroom With A Twist’ review from the Winnipeg Press. They wrote that Tristan MacManus And Anna Trebunskaya bring “magic” to Winnipeg, Canada. Below is more on the show. Also Producer Scott Stander tells us, “The crowds have been loving the show and the amazing dancers that make this show’s heart …beat!!”
ETA: Be sure to see the show if you can near you. Jimmbboe saw it in Winnipeg. He described it as an “awesome” and “amazing” show. Even a day after the show, he says he has a “Ballroom With A twist” hangover (lol). He particularly mentioned a funny scene with Anna especially when she told Jonathan to take his cake and get off the stage! lol Jim also said the Winnipeg Symphony was “outstanding” as they provided live music throughout! To see some fun photos, see Ballroom With A Twist Facebook and Tristan MacManus Fan Page at Facebook.
After a subdued orchestral introduction, the corps of five males came onstage to slink their way through The Look of Love. In fact, these testosterone-fuelled dancers were one of the show’s highlights (no bias here), as they performed the Bob Fosse-inspired choreography with swaggering ease.
Then Trebunskaya and MacManus took the stage for two dances: Gershwin’s I Got Rhythm — a stylized mosh pit of waltz, quickstep and Charleston — that earned the evening’s first loud cheers. This, in turn, morphed into Singin’ in the Rain that also provided one of the show’s true-blue ballroom dances.
The two then ostensibly became hosts, with the Irish-born MacManus introducing the famously red-haired Trebunskaya as “Little Red Riding Hood.”
Despite their, at times, awkward stage banter, they were nevertheless able to whip the already rowdy, younger crowd of 1,691 into a frenzy, cheekily promising “the hotter you get, the less clothes we wear.” The Russian-born Trebunskaya also showed her renowned, adorable wit during a Q & A session, with one audience member even shouting out a marriage proposal to the lithe artist.
The high-octane show is mostly well-paced, with ballads such as Smith’s blistering interpretation of Michael Bublé hit Feeling Good showing off his powerhouse vocals. Glocksen-Ruzicka also treated us to a soulful Gravity that also allowed the dancers to catch their breath — or change into their next, eye-popping, sequin-encrusted costume.
