Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo
DATE: Thursday, Feb. 27, 7pm
LOCATION: Baum Walker Hall at Walton Arts Center
TICKETS: starting at $24
Founded in 1974 by a group of ballet enthusiasts, The Trocks, as the dancers are affectionately known, are a company of critically acclaimed professional male dancers performing the full range of ballet and modern dance repertoire, but 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, romantic princesses or angstridden Victorian ladies – enhances, rather than mocks, the spirit of dance as an art form. The Trocks’ inspired blend of an impeccable comic approach, knowledge of dance and the astounding fact that men can, indeed, dance en pointe without falling flat on their faces makes for a Night Out that you won’t forget!
