Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

This weekend i went to Birmingham with a friend from home to see Swan Lake, Trock style.
The Trocks are all male ballet dancers who perform ballets such as Swan Lake but in a comedy style. They are fantastic to watch if you are interested in Ballet or not. All of the movements are superbly executed and brilliantly danced.

The whole thing is very panto expression wise but at the same time parts of the dances are done with precision and elegance and you can't help but be captivated by the sheer brilliance of the piece. Everything you have ever dreaded or wanted to do on stage if taken to the the limits...falling over, Being kicked in the face or generally just wanting to wave at your friends.

It's all very professional and non cheesy at all but ultimately very cheesy at the same time...does this make sense???

If you get a chance they really are a must see group!
