It's been a long time coming!

"I first saw Trocks on an A&E production and I've been waiting for ages for them to put out a DVD. Is your family tired of your ballet videos? Want something you can put on that everybody will "get"? Have you got enough balletomane friends that know the "Siegfried's best friend" joke? Have a party and put on the Trocks. Enough of the humor is broad that everyone will get it (and howl), enough of it is ballet and choreography in-jokes that the knowledgeable will howl too. And you will be stunned to see men dancing on pointe---and unlike the proverbial singing pig, doing it WELL!"
The Trockadero Ballet is outstanding

"I took a trip to England at the end of March 2006. The highlight of this trip was a performance by the all-male ballet group "Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo" at the Peacock Theater in London.
The unique "Trockadero" company had returned to London for the first time in five years. The company's 15 professional male dancers performed some of the greatest moments of classical ballet, including extracts from such classics as Paquita, Raymonda, and Swan Lake. The Trockadero Ballet was outstanding. Each dancer plays a male and a female role and has two stage names. This is a truly international company of extraordinary quality. The male dancers play the roles of Russian ballerinas so skillfully and so gracefully that it was hard to believe that they are not women. The dancers are great athletes and great comedians. Their parody of classic ballet is tasteful and hilariously funny. I liked them so much that I purchased a DVD of their performance soon after I arrived home.

Can never get enough!

"What amazes me the most about the Trocks is the fact that some of them outstrip their "female" counterparts on several levels. Robert Carter can out fouette any woman I have ever seen, and he brings across the classic diva attitude in every performace. Carlos Garcia plays up the "I'm just too adorable for my own good" ballerina, Jai Williams is always so dainty, wearing the taped-together glasses for every big show-stopper and Paul Ghiselin is the perfect Trock-he can dance, and he has the facial and body expressions to seriously make the comedy aspects work.
Ken Busbin and Fernando Medina are two of the dancers I always felt dance better in their respective gender roles. Ken was amazing as Siegfried in Swan Lake, and Fernando has the athleticism of a Russian gymnast. His barrel turns and scissor jumps in Le Corsaire put any male dancer in the Kirov to shame.
But I kneel at the feet of Bernd Burgmaier. He is impossibly tall, he has impeccable technique, his beautiful arabesques make me, as a former dancer, INSANELY jealous, not to mention he just might be the most adorable creature on the planet. I think I just might be developing a crush, granted, of the very very very VERY non-requitted variety :)"
