Look no further for top-notch ballet that’s also uproariously funny! The world’s foremost all-male comic ballet company, famed for performing en travesti and on pointe, is back with another sensational program spoofing some of your favorite works. Join in the fun of the company’s 50th anniversary season as the virtuosity of these dancers amaze, even as they send you into stitches by exaggerating the foibles, accidents, and underlying incongruities of serious dance.

Founded in 1974 to present a playful view of classical ballet in parody form, “The Trocks” went from performing in Off-Off Broadway lofts to becoming a major dance phenomenon, renowned for its “delicious blend of cheeky humor and true reverence” (The New York Times). As pioneers of diversity and acceptance, the Trocks’ mission continues: to bring the pleasure of dance to the widest possible audience.

“Mixing technical skill with slapstick hilarity, the Trocks are as engaging as ever.” – The Guardian
