Dear Bottle Dancers,
We wanted to thank you guys SO much for the incredible performance at our wedding last Saturday night. You guys did a wonderful, wonderful job and it was such an awesome addition to our wedding. The guests LOVED it and we got so many compliments afterward specifically about you guys.
Also, I really want to thank you for the ways in which you personalized it for us. First of all, everything worked exactly as I'd envisioned in terms of how you guys started - so many people just thought you were friends of mine! (In part because I'm an actor, so it is conceivable that I have friends who are dancers, and also because I had done a surprise song just before you entered which actual friends of mine did do a dance to). But nevertheless, it did not seem like you were performers or putting on a show - it felt spontaneous and like you were guests, and that is exactly what I wanted. I was so happy with how many people asked if you were friends of mine!
I also really appreciated that you worked with the edited track - for me this helped with the above effect so much because it cut out the dialogue bits on the soundtrack and also the more 'showy' part of your routine [which I'm sure is great for some people].
Lastly, I really appreciated that you guys all learnt the Mezinka dance and helped people. You all did it exactly right, but unfortunately, the band did something unexpected - they repeated the last stanza twice, which not only made the steps out of sync, but I didn't have steps for the final repetition. So in the end, most people couldn't really follow the dance, but of course they just thought that was their own fault, not that the band or the dancers were doing anything wrong! Nevertheless, it was a nice touch, and many people enjoyed it as well! (And once the song went onto the Miserlou and Hava Nagila, the steps worked again).
So all in all, you guys were great, and if there is anywhere you'd like me to leave a review or something, I would be happy to. Thank you so, so much for helping to make our wedding such a special event with that extra bit of Yiddishkeit :)
With grattitude, Michael & Tomer

First Dance.... Or is it!!? Bottle Dancers are crashing the wedding - An unexpected surprise
Most of the guests at Adam's wedding at Congregation Shaarey Israel in Suffern, New York on November 17th, 2019 were confused and embarrassed when a man dressed into Jewish Orthodox outfit suddenly stopped the first dance saying: "I am sorry! Where is the baby? Where is the Prince? I’m so sorry!", then he apologized to the Newlyweds: "Sorry, Keep dancing!". A few minutes later he recognized the Groom: "Hi Adam, Congratulations! beautiful wife!". Later he called Moshe and David asking them to help him with the Bottle Dance. Soon everybody realized that this is a part of entertainment.
