Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

A greatly anticipated return for The World’s Foremost All-Male Comic Ballet Company!

Superb dancers… and comic geniuses! They have travelled the world since their inception in 1974 performing in more than 30 countries and 500 cities, and still continue to garner rave reviews from both audiences and the international press. They combine astounding technique with an entertaining and affectionately irreverent reinterpretation of the great classics of dance.

Founded by a group of ballet enthusiasts for the purpose of presenting a playful, entertaining view of traditional, classical ballet in parody form and en travesti, Les Ballets Trockadero first performed in the late-late shows in Off-Off Broadway lofts. The TROCKS, as they are affectionately known, quickly garnered a major critical acclaim establishing the Company as an artistic and popular success. By mid 1975, the TROCKS’ inspired blend of their loving knowledge of dance, their comic approach, and the astounding fact that men can, indeed, dance en pointe without falling flat on their faces, was being noted beyond New York.

“Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo blend humour with athletic artistry” –
Calgary Herald

The original concept of LES BALLETS TROCKADERO DE MONTE CARLO has not changed. These professional male dancers perform the full range of ballet and modern dance repertoire, including classical and original works in faithful renditions of the manners and conceits of each dance style. The comedy is achieved by incorporating and exaggerating the foibles, accidents, and underlying incongruities of serious dance.  The fact that men dance all the parts–heavy bodies delicately balancing on toes as swans, sylphs, water sprites, romantic princesses, angst-ridden Victorian ladies–enhances rather than mocks the spirit of dance as an art form, delighting and amusing the most knowledgeable, as well as novices, in the audiences.

Their performance is like no other!
