Press

  • Principal Ballerina American Ballet Theater
    “Ballerina Boys” isn’t just a beautifully documented history of the groundbreaking Les Ballets Trockadero, it’s a reflection of the ballet world. All that ballet has been, is and should strive to be. The reach this company has had for decades in exposing so many to ballet, is a testament to the necessity of diversity, inclusion, love, passion and humor in the arts. The Trocks have been innovative boundary breaking leaders for over 40 years and this is a well deserved celebration of their impact.
    Misty Copeland
  • Corvino Ballet
    Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo has survived many decades due in part to its sincere desire to deliver to its audience respect and admiration for the conventions that make up the world of ballet. If you are interested in dance, and even more, if you are passionate about the human spirit, see “Ballerina Boys!”
    Andra Corvin
  • DBI Inc. Ballet impresario
    Tory Dobrin is the only working artistic director who embodies his institution's history. That is why the Trocks are always dancing their own survival saga, carrying into the performances the Stonewall Riots, the misery of AIDS, and the tradition of drag as resistance.
    Nobu Kumamoto
  • Director of the Jerome Robbins Foundation
    And what better time than now to show how the art of dance through Les Ballets Trockadero, against all odds and against so many stereotypes that still exist today, can provide us beauty, make us cry and make us laugh.
    Allen Greenberg
  • Associate Director, The New York Public Library of the Performing Arts
    Funny and poignant, the film pays timely homage to the performers of the Trocks who transcend gender tropes with technique, charisma and devotion that rivals any ballet company.
    Linda Murra
  • Producer, LOVETT STORIES + STRATEGIES
    Bravo to “Ballerina Boys!” This exquisitely shot and masterfully edited fun-packed film is much more than an opportunity to laugh and love. The dancers’ challenge to traditional gender roles helps us to better understand and accept the growing gender identification revolution that has fascinated and confused so many people today. Don’t miss this moving film!
