If you are looking for something a little different in ballet, you should try this. the Trockadero troupe offers comedy, men dancing on pointe as women, and men dancing as men.(unfortunately, they do not offer men dancing on pointe as men, which has been explored by others, nor do they explore women dancing as men.) They are very entertaining and dance quite well, showing a serious side in addition to the comedy. The company director points out that they also make it a point ( a pointe? ) to do unusual pieces, not done much by other companies, such as "Raymonda's Wedding" in volume one and "Yes Virginia, Another Piano Ballet" in volume two (volume two is also available through amazon.com ). As a male ballet dancer myself, the differences in what makes movement masculine or feminine is something I and all serious dancers explore; perhaps this troupe helps shed some light on this. The overall emphasis here is comedy, not any heavy message, so this dvd should appeal to a wide audience.
