In 1959, the day after Chanukah, a musical wave lurched out of London's East End and West End simultaneously.

Surfing that soundwave of sonic sweat was Willy Bergman, bandleader and trendtrepreneur. He called it 'Der Shvitz', global pop-pickers stole it and called it 'The Twist' : the rest is twistory. Bergman's sleek Yiddish Twist Orchestra still honour his bold vision. Twist and Twango, Love and Mambo, dance and bagelekh too… Or, in this case, doughnuts because this is Yiddish Twist with a Chanukah twist. Come join the party.

Genre-hopping dance fun
