Meet the Trocks: Men, Tutus and Talent

Carter trained with the Chicago-based Joffrey Ballet. But his dream was always to join the Trocks.

"I didn't want to be a girl, but I knew I could do a lot of the same stuff and some of the stuff they couldn't do because I had the strength being a boy," he said. "I could do the stuff en pointe and it's fun."

En pointe puts the dancers up on their toes -- something men generally don't do in ballet. But there's a lot that men generally don't do in ballet that the Trocks do.

And it's more than just hilarious -- it's hilariously impressive.
