More of the Trocks at the Joyce Theater

Absolutely loved “Stars and Stripes Forever” and “Chopeniana” by the Trocks!!!

Stunning pas de deux. Gorgeous fouettes with exciting double turns. The evening was a beautiful technical showcase of classical ballet.

Yet, you don’t want to miss any of the corps variations, silly pre-show announcements, hilarious program notes, the drinking and the champagne on stage, or the naps and sleep-walking ballerina who fell off the stage.

Bravos to this company of all-male ballet dancers en pointe for giving us ballet comedy at its finest.

The Trocks at the Joyce Theater

Wrapping up the year with hilarious ballet comedy by the Trocks at the Joyce Theater.

From the silly stage names and absurd bios in the printed program to the comical pre-show announcements… from Swan Lake to the encore “modern” performance featuring high kicks to the tune of Winter Wonderland… we were treated to a beautiful and fun night of ballet by this company of talented all-male dancers.

Fall for Dance: Day Six

Learnt a little more about classical Indian dance tonight from a Czech Indian dancer.

Still love Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. The ballerina chest bump before the finale (what a way to end a ballet parody, right?) actually reminded me of a personal story… but let’s leave that offline!

ABT’s Souvenir d’un lieu cher is also lovely. On this fourth occasion seeing the performance, I interpreted the choreography differently. I always thought the dance was the stories of the two couples. Tonight, I had the strange feeling perhaps it’s actually the dream/desire of one of the girls?

Fall for Dance: Day Five

Featuring a full company of male dancers on pointe, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo won the most applaud (and laughters) tonight with their comic presentation of Paquita. More than just comedy, their technical works including the fouetté sequences (16? More than 16? I was mesmorized and wasn’t counting) were equally impressive too!
