February 9 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Calling all LGBTQIA performers! Join us for a masterclass Drag performance with Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (you may know them as the company that Brooke Lynn Heights performed with) the night before their show at the Byham Theatre on Feb 10th! No prior dance experience needed!

The Dying Swan

“All must have had little notion when this solo was created for Anna Pavlova in 1905 that it would become, in later years, her signature dance and perhaps the most famous solo ballet.

Les Ballets Trockadero offers its own distinctive interpretation of the terminal fowl.”

The World’s Foremost Gender-Skewering, Comic Ballet Company

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo was founded in 1974 in the wake of the Stonewall Uprising, with the first performances held on the makeshift stage of the West Side Discussion Group’s loft space in downtown New York City. We’ve come a long way, baby…

Over its 50-year journey, the company has grown into a crowd-pleasing, globe-spanning phenomenon, having performed in over 43 countries and 667 cities for enthusiastic crowds of all sizes, as well as connecting with small groups through engagement programs that focus on elements of their performance: The personas! The technique! The wigs!

The world’s foremost gender-skewering comic ballet company now exists in a world that is catching up with their once highly-subversive viewpoint, allowing their style of ballet to be viewed simply as…sheer entertainment.

Whether you have sought out the Trocks or the Trocks found you: they love the audiences who appreciate their satirical, silly, skilled, slapstick corner of the ballet world, long-time fans and newbies alike.
