The Trocks, our favorite men in tutus, are coming back! Yes, they are incredibly funny, but at the same time they are marvelously skilled ballet dancers. Performing the full range of classical ballet, and even some modern dance as well, these men dance all the parts, and do it magnificently. Whether you have never seen them or seen them numerous times, you will fall in love with what The Seattle Times calls “the clown princes of ballet.”
- They tour an estimated 200 nights a year.
- The Trocks have performed in over 600 cities and 40 countries world wide!
- These accomplished dancers are from all over the world, Italy, South Africa, Cuba, China, Columbia, Spain, Puerto Rico, and of course some of them hailing from the states of South Carolina, Tennessee, New York, Ohio, and California. Every one of them training at some of the best schools around the world.
- Each dancer dons a female character role and a male character role. Each name a hilarious play on words with a nod to Russian ballet stars. For example dancer Kevin Garcia’s female stage name is Elvira Khababgallina and his male stage name is Sergey Legupski!
- Monte Carlo is incorporated into the name of the company to pay homage to dance history and the famed Ballet Russess de Monte Carlo, which was directed by Sergei Diaghilev up until his death in 1932. When the director died the famous company was divided in two after a fall out between Wassily de Basil (director) and Rene Blum (artistic director) and operated under the names “Original Ballet Russe” and “Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo.”
- The documentary about the Trocks, Rebels on Pointe is available on the Starz Network!
