A VERY talented troup of Russian dancers. The women weren't particularly attractive, but danced splendidly.

I never thought men could dance on Points but boy, was I wrong!
Not only they can do that, but they do it just as well, if not better, than women! I was already expecting a night of great performance but I was still pleasantly surprised! These...continued

A hugely enjoyable ballet performance by the all-male group. They are all classically trained ( in the male as well as the female moves, including dancing on toes ), they are extremely skilled, use a lot of the classical choreography, but add a...continued

I wish I could give this show higher than 5 Stars as it deserves it. It's a very entertaining event. The dancers are hilariously clever as well as extremely talented. Can't wait for them to return again to the West Coast. BRAVO!!!

So much fun. Can't wait for the next show when they return. As for the Carpenter theater, GREAT venue. Not a bad seat in the house. Would love to se another show there. Even seats in the last row would be good.

Absolutely fantastic!!! Amazing dancers with great senses of humor. The audience was roaring with laughter and the dancers received a well-deserved standing ovation.

What a wonderful combination of banana peel humor and dance. The juxtapositon of low humor and high balletic art never let up. This was one of the most enjoyable snd fulfilling evenings I've spent in the theatre in a long time.

It was a great performance. Excellent dancers. You would never
expect a male to be so light on their toes. A show not to be missed.

I have a Red Velvet membership & our tickets were at center in the last row. Great viewing seats. This was our second time seeing the Trocks & we enjoyed them again.
