TUESDAY, JANUARY 31st
TIMES-UNION CENTER – MORAN THEATER
JACKSONVILLE, FL – Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, or the Trocks as they are lovingly referred to by their fans, have become an international phenomenon! The all-male cast of burly ballerinas performs a wide range of ballet and modern dance styles. With their impeccable technical skill as well as side splitting comedic timing, this performance is sure to have you rolling in the aisles with laughter!
The Trocks perform at Jacksonville’s Times-Union Center on Tuesday, January 31st at 7:30PM.
Founded in 1974 by a group of ballet enthusiasts for the purpose of presenting a playful, entertaining view of traditional, classical ballet in parody form and en travesti, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo has established itself over the years as a major dance phenomenon throughout the world, appearing in over 30 countries and over 500 cities worldwide.
The original concept of the show has not changed since 1974; it is a company of professional male dancers performing the full range of the ballet and modern dance repertoire. 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, or angst-ridden Victorian ladies – enhances, rather than mocks,
the spirit of dance as an art form, amusing the most knowledgeable, as well as novices, in the audiences.
