LES BALLETS TROCKADERO DE MONTE CARLO
The World’s Foremost Gender-Skewering Comic Ballet Company
Toeing the line between high art and high camp, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo is an international phenomenon of 16 gender-skewering beloved burly dancers. Celebrating almost 50 years, they have been delighting audiences of all ages at sell-out performances featuring their fabulous sense of fun through flawless dance as they perform parodies of famed ballet classics. The "Trocks," as they are affectionately known, boast a wicked comedic sense of humor which is only outmatched by their panache and technical prowess. Every performance frivolously froths with tutus and testosterone, blush-pink ballet pumps, fierce false eyelashes and prima ballerina attitude.
BEYOND THE PERFORMANCE

Participants will be given a short barre and some center work before learning excerpts of classical repertoire; first as performed by the world’s great ballet companies to then compare it to the Trocks’ satirical version.
