Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

Drag meets dance when “the Trocks” take the stage. For over 40 years, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo have turned the dance world on its head with their (mostly) faithful renditions of classical ballet repertoire. “A company of men who dance on pointe with as much panache and style as any prima ballerina” (Pointe Magazine), the Trocks have delighted and amazed audiences in over 34 countries and 600 cities since their modest beginnings in an “off-off Broadway” loft.
