The Trocks, as they are affectionately known, is a company of professional male dancers performing the full range of the ballet and modern dance repertoire, including classical and original works in faithful renditions of the manners and conceits of those dance styles. 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.
“The Trocks are looking better than ever. … It was ballet that would probably delight all who miss ballet as it once was. There was nary a modern dance step or gesture in sight, in dancing filled with the kind of infectious passion and triumph the Bolshoi Ballet once brought to the Stage… Their program of grand ballet is as much food for the mind as it is for the eye and the funny bone.” ~ The New York Times
“Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo…remains one of the great comic creations of the American stage.” ~ San Francisco Chronicle
