Grab the red satin pumps, all you “Dancing with the Stars” divas. TV legend Barbara Eden will appear as mistress of ceremonies in “Ballroom With a Twist,” at the DuPont Theatre January 19-24. The show, choreographed by “Dancing with the Stars” choreographer Louis van Amstel, is riveting, says Eden. “On TV, it’s beautiful, but not as tactile. The dancers are of another world.” Superstar couples Alec Mazo and Edyta Sliwinski and Jonathan Roberts and Anna Trebunskaya are in the cast, too. The stars will conduct a master class in the Gold Ballroom of the Hotel du Pont on January 18. Any local ballroomer can glide with the celebs, but one lucky couple will perform with the cast on opening night. “This is an elegant, high-energy show that showcases the beauty and athleticism of ballroom dance,” says DuPont Theatre manager John Gardner. Eden, who appeared at the DuPont in 2002, is “thrilled to be back,” she says. “I have fond memories of Delaware, and I’m delighted to be part of a magical, dynamic and passionate show.” For more, visit duponttheatre.com, or call 656-4401.
