Gilles Marini To Do Ballroom With A Twist In Patchogue, NY Aug. 12 – 16th

According to the Greater Patchogue, Gilles Marini has been added to the cast of “Ballroom With A Twist” from Aug. 12 – 16 in Patchogue, NY. You can even meet him…

Not only is Marini part of the cast in the interactive celebration of song and dance called Ballroom with a Twist — which is running from Aug. 12-16 in Patchogue through Gateway Playhouse — attendees might even get to chat or dance with him.

They’d get to meet the other performers at Patchogue Theater for the Performing Arts as well.

Those include Anna Trebunskaya, Chelsie Hightower and others from the show Dancing with the Stars, as well as past participants of American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance. (See video from Wednesday’s warmups.)

In a pre-opening night interview Wednesday, we asked Marini if he was aware the local ladies had been asking about him.

“Saying like, what? What is he not wearing?” the French model responded.

“I’m very excited to do the show,” Marini continued. “People get involved. It’s not only watching and that’s it. There’s a lot more to it, that’s why we call it Ballroom with a Twist, because we’re making people involved.”

So how would admirers of his work and his, um, ability to shower respond to getting so up close and personal with him?

“I think the response is enjoyment and they realize we are very much human,” he continued. “People see the people from the movie industry or whatever it is, not too accessible, but we all become one. Whenever people come to the show we all become one.”
