The Wortham Center for the Performing Arts is offering what is sure to be two amazing virtual workshops with the legendary internationally renowned, all-male comic ballet company, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (“The Trocks”)!

“The Dying Swan” — February 19, 2021 at 7pm
In this interactive virtual workshop, you will be given a short warmup and overview of the history of the ballet and will then be taught the ballet’s signature performance of “The Dying Swan,” with an opportunity to put your own comic spin on this classic ballet. All levels of dance experience are welcome!

Virtual Makeup Demo — February 26, 2021 at 7pm
This is where you can experience the power of transformation! A Trocks dancer will show you how to bring the diva straight from his virtual dressing room as he walks you through the steps of makeup in preparation for performance. You will have the opportunity to chat with company members to learn more about what it takes to get ready for a show.

“Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo strives to engage communities as an extension of the work the company does onstage. As a world-class all-male comic ballet company, the company is constantly defying expectations and rearticulating absolutes when it comes to dance, ballet, and gender.”
