Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo is an American ballet company of men who dance in drag. The company does satires and parodies of romantic and classical ballet, as well as other forms of dance. Peter Anastos, Natch Taylor, and Antony Bassae co-founded the "Trocks" in 1974 in New York City. The company danced in small shows late at night in places on off-off Broadway. Their first show was on September 9, 1974.[1] The artistic director in 2011 is Tory Dobrin.[2] The public's attention was directed to the company when Arlene Croce reviewed the "Trocks" in The New Yorker. The "Trocks" have danced in many large cities worldwide. In 2008 the company danced for Prince Charles at the Royal Variety Performance.[3]
