Such Pretty Dancers

27 Jun

I don’t know, maybe it’s just me. I saw this poster for a dance performance, right?

And then, upon closer inspection, I was like, DAMN! Those are some manly looking women there! WTF are the dancers on steroids?? Or is this just me?

No offense to the “ladies” in the poster. I’m sure they’re perfectly … something.

Seriously though, isn’t it kind of weird to have men dressed up as women ballet dancers? It doesn’t even mention it in the poster like it’s a comedy or something.


I mean, not even waxed chests? Come on now folks. That’s just bargain basement cross-dressing if you ask me.

    Yes, they are men.
    See them here in this pictures:

    “Made up of classically trained ballet dancers drawn from all over the world – Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo goes to great lengths to find the “funny” in traditional choreography.”

    I think it could be a great show, but as usually this poster is badly designed and it doesn’t make clear at all what’s on show.
    Hey, designers…. Ballet?! How can you make such a terrible work with such a beautiful theme to work with?!

    No words for it.

    Yes, indeed Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo – these gentleman have been delighting dance audiences since the mid-seventies. If you get a chance, take in a show. Their artistry, sense of comedy, and remarkable technical prowess (yes, they do dance en pointe) are sure to delight and amaze. You may even want to start ballet class!
