The Trocs are great fun. I'm not a fan of ballet. I hated it when my grandmother forced me to take lessons. But the Trocs...I could watch them all day.

Sounds highly enjoyable! Although, had I not read the article, I might not have understood some of the nuances.

I'm seriously considering going to see them when they come to Seattle. The $40 ticket price is giving me pause, however.

I &heart; the Trocs. I would imagine their take on Pas de Quatre is hysterical, whatever stance you might take on the eternal debate over various catty ballet-in jokes creeping into the version generally performed today vs. a pure restaging of "just the steps, m'am."
