The World’s Foremost All-Male Comic Ballet Company
Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo has been a fabulous fixture in the NY and international dance world since its founding in 1974. Throughout 45+ years of ballet and drag performances, they have helped move drag from the counterculture to its current place in the mainstream. Today, the Trocks remain at the cutting edge of the ballet world for their blend of satire and spectacle that places the strength of the male-identified body in counterpoint to a traditionally feminine art form, continuing their mission of bringing the pleasure of dance to the widest possible audience.
From humble beginnings in off-off Broadway lofts and late-night shows, to critically-acclaimed international tours and awards, The Trocks continue to grow its audience in New York City and around the world with high energy, virtuosic and captivating performances, while also connecting with the LGBTQ+ community through free workshops.
Your generous contribution will help provide essential artistic support for the company!
Donations of any size are greatly appreciated. However, see below benefits of contributing an annual gift of $75 or more.
