Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo’s mission, since its founding in 1974, is to spread joy throughout the world by performing parodies of classical ballets en pointe and en travesti. Using stunning technique and singular humor to defy classical ballet’s historical gender classifications, the company creates delightful performances and engagement opportunities that enable audiences to re-imagine their expectations of the art form.

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo stands with those who embrace a commitment to diversity, equity, inclusivity and accessibility. As global ambassadors of LGBTQ+ culture and acceptance, we uplift and inspire the next generation of choreographers, performers, dance lovers and advocates while supporting LGBTQ+ elders and youth and serving as an integral link to the history, tradition, and future of LGBTQ+ performance.
