img_1998As part of their worldwide tour, one of the most original troupes on the globe is coming to Carpenter Center in Long Beach this weekend. Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, affectionately know as “The Trocks,” are not just men in tutus and pointe shoes going for laughs (although even their title “the world’s foremost all-male comic ballet company” is funny). There is comedy, yes, but that is not all there is to see. Aside from the parody of classical dance, you will be amazed at the beauty and skill of the dancers, even as you notice a gum chewing corp member. The highly popular company always sells out, which explains the added performance; you can attend Saturday night January 23 or Sunday January 24, 2016. Before you go, here are some handy tips for the prospective Trock:
