BALLET BOOTY CALL rockets Miami to the top of the ballet world

"I have seen the future of ballet and it resides in Miami."
Those are the last words Peter Martins, Ballet Master in Chief of the New York City Ballet, uttered before attempting to take his life following the premiere of the Miami City Ballet's "Ballet Booty Call." Choreographed by Edward Villella with music by Luther Campbell based on an idea by Verticus S. Erectus, the homegrown spectacle was the first time anyone can recall where a ballet got the audience dancing-- and in some cases it was reported, fornicating-- in the aisle.
"I guess that's a good thing," a rather pale and shaken looking Villella said following the premiere at a party at Jumbo's on 7th Avenue.
"You're goddamn right its a good thing, you honkey flake," Campbell added. "'Ballet Booty Call' will save the motherfuckin' Carnival Center!"
"Damn right, bro," Erectus replied while offering Campbell a lame handshake which was ignored. "We be rollin' in the bling, that's fo shizzle."
