Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo remains one of the most popular dance troupes in the United States. The company of professional male dancers performs the full range of the ballet and modern dance repertoire, achieving high comedy by incorporating and exaggerating the foibles, accidents and underlying incongruities of serious dance. The fact that men dance all the parts—heavy bodies delicately balancing on toes as swans, sylphs, water sprites, romantic princesses or angst-ridden Victorian ladies—enhances, rather than mocks, the spirit of dance as an art form, delighting and amusing novices and aficionados alike.
