|The original concept of LES BALLETS TROCKADERO DE MONTE CARLO has not changed since its inception. It is a Company of professional male dancers performing the full range of the ballet and modern dance repertoire, including classical and original works in faithful renditions of the manners and conceits of those dance styles. The comedy is achieved 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, angst-ridden Victorian ladies--enhances rather than mocks the spirit of dance as an art form, delighting and amusing the most knowledgeable, as well as novices, in the audiences. For the future, there are plans for new works in the repertoire: new cities, states and countries to perform in; and for the continuation of the TROCKs' original purpose: to bring the pleasure of dance to the widest possible audience. They will, as they have done for thirty years, “Keep on Trockin'.”|

|We got books on the subject, watched training videos and watched lots of games on TV and in person. We also talked to lots of ppl who knew more then we did. We still don't know everything but we're getting there.|
|I think it is wonderful that he seems to have a gift for this. So now you need to know if he has the desire.|
|And btw we never did get to see that costume you were working on! I for one am still interested!|

And he is a real guy, who really made a living at it and who clearly loved it. And there is a lot of solo stuff that he did...so he can see ballet without the girls in tutus! Might be good for him.
I mean look at him!!!

I asked him if he wanted another type of dance class today while he was just playing and he said he'd love it....so I am off to find a good dance school with hopefully boys...

I bucked up the money (OUCH) and took a deep breath.
(the school said they'd offer me a full refund if he backed out at any time!)
I was so proud as he's really good not just a token Y chromasome
The teachers mind you were really stumbling to remember to include him..
the secretary was instructing us on no tutus, pink leotards and I just giggled until she saw my handsome little dude lol oh not for him
I am so proud of my little man for sticking with what he loves.
and for all the sexist stuff he had half the girls following him around!
parents were shocked as well 'he's in this class?'
YES sir watch him go
and he really liked the structure and learning new moves.
