#109 – ‘Rock the Ballet’

19 03 2010

The bogan does not like ballet. The male bogan is open about this. The female bogan will occasionally declare their love of ballet – particularly as their qualifications extend to three years with their ankles on a horizontal bar in primary school – yet hasn’t attended a performance in over a decade. This is terrible news for ballet dancers, who for years, have struggled to retain the world’s attention, and are now haemorrhaging money as they cannot access bogan bucks.

A solution had to emerge. A bogan solution. But how to make ballet appeal to its sworn enemies? Why, make it x-treme, of course. Thus was born Rasta Thomas’ ‘Rock the Ballet’, a “fusion of classic ballet technique blended with the excitement of musical theatre, hip hop, tap, contemporary dance, gymnastics and more. Featuring a stellar soundtrack including some of the biggest hits from Michael Jackson*, U2*, Prince*, Queen*, Coldplay* and Lenny Kravitz*, and set against a backdrop of video projected scenery, the show is exciting, powerful and brilliantly entertaining.”

Rasta Thomas, clearly a sworn enemy of both the ballet and rock fraternities, has merged the lameness of ballet with the lameness of Lenny Kravitz and Coldplay, creating an Andre Rieu-esque doubling-down on lameness which has in the past proven successful in emptying the bogan wallet and confusing the bogan mind.

Thus conceived, Rock the Ballet could then proceed to be sold to bogans. Hence the inclusion of “the excitement of…hip hop”, phrases like “gravity doesn’t exist for him and his dancers” featuring in the promos, and having Ticketmaster offer ‘presale’ deals. ‘Presale’ offers in particular appeal to the bogan need to break the rules. The bogan buys tickets that they technically aren’t allowed to buy, hence are made happy. In these ‘presale’ offers, the ‘password’ the bogan must offer is ‘BADBOYS’, because it is sufficiently x-treme to encourage the male bogan’s acquiescence to attend.

Once seated, the bogan sees this:

And laments.

*” Please note that these are not the original recordings. For more information please visit the official Rock the Ballet website.” The bogan gets to watch x-treme ballet and a cover band at the same time!

LOL. Ah, femme bogues and their ankles. Three years on the horizontal bar, many more than that behind their ears…

“…LOL. Ah, femme bogues and their ankles. Three years on the horizontal bar, many more than that behind their ears…”

My thoughts exactly, don’t the little boguettes skip ballet class today & go straight for the vertical pole in stripper class??

19 03 2010
Nelson Esq

Correction- child femme-bogues did not do ballet, they did Jazz Ballet. There’s a difference….apparently….

19 03 2010
Shirley M

I have limited knowledge on all things dance, but it’s my understanding that Jazz Ballet has nothing to do with either Jazz or Ballet.

19 03 2010
Toddo

Anything but line dancing.
At least bastardised forms of ballet require some degree of nimbleness.
Anyone who can lift their leg higher than their chest is doing better than me, and besides who hasn’t tried their own form of bastardised ballet in the bathroom after a shower?

19 03 2010
Shirley M

I can honestly say that I have never tried any form of bastardised ballet in the bathroom after a shower.

Cheryl of Kelmy

Ah yes! The old ‘missing the bath matt and doing the splits’ trick! Only when I do that I’m to embarresed to cry out in pain coz I don’t want to attract attention coz I’m too ashamed to even let my husband see me in that sort of position!

19 03 2010
AlyssaKT

that sort of position might spice things up with your husband, Cheryl 😉

Cheryl, Your husband would be too busy in the ensuite checking out his tribal and West Coast Eagle tattoos to render assistance

I practiced Ballet for 10 years, and you’re right Shirley, Jazz and Ballet have nothing to do with each other. The mind boggles.

19 03 2010
Benjamin

Yep.

With Jazz Ballet, at the end of term concert they do a dance to “Hey Big Spender”.

I’ve been to a few of these things put on by dance schools, and if I see another pre-teen dancing to something overtly sexual again, I think I’m going to have to, well, do something.

19 03 2010
Shirley M

Fuck. You just awoke a repressed memory of mine. I was forced to dance to Hey Big Spender at high school. Thanks Benjamin.

Putting on the Ritz is also a popular choice.

19 03 2010
Benjamin

I’m truly sorry.

As they say, a problem shared is a problem doubled.

19 03 2010
Shirley M

It’s ok. A few champagnes this evening should force this memory back into the subconscious where it belongs.

19 03 2010
Nelson Esq

Hey Benjamin, you should watch the ending of ‘Little Miss Sunshine’

19 03 2010
Benjamin

I’ve seen it, but for some reason I can’t remember that bit.

Should I watch it again? Perhaps I blanked it out.

19 03 2010
Fiona of Toorak

LOL. She’s a freak, a super freak, she’s super freak-AYE!

19 03 2010
Benjamin

I guess that’s a “No” then.

19 03 2010
Nelson Esq

That’s the one! Fiona, it’s nice to see your natural sense of humour coming out!
At the recent Moonee Valley Festival at Queens Park the local dance schools had their pre and early teens put on shows on a specially erected stage….*shudder*. It was relentless, there was a continual line-up of acts for hours on end. As I was minding a friends 6 year old daughter who was mesmerised by the show, I couldn’t escape!!
I think the little fairies who live in the park died that day…

19 03 2010
Fiona of Toorak

LOL. Never mind, I’m sure that once the sun went down the fairy quotient temporarily and furtively increased.

19 03 2010
Sten

HA! It was your use of the word “furtively” which gave away your double-meaning. Well done, Fiona.

19 03 2010
Simon

That was good. Was George Michael seen in the viciniity?

19 03 2010
Jay

Yes, repressed memories are flooding to the surface for me too… Some years ago, I attended an end-of-year dance recital in which the daughter of a friend of mine was participating. Mid-way through the evening, a number of the children’s mothers put on a “display” also… the image of 15 or so 35+ year old women, resplendent in their black leotards and stockings, top hats and canes, jiggling around the stage to the strains of “Big Spender” is something that I thought I’d managed to put behind me for all time… sadly not, it would seem. Oh the horror.

19 03 2010
Jo

that reminds me of the australian movie…Razzle Dazzle I think its called, in a scene the “stage mother” does a routine with her daughter…its creepy

Of course attendance would then allow the bogue to then critique the calibre of So You Think You can Dance contestants with cultured authority.

19 03 2010

The presale password is ‘BADBOYS’? Is that true, TBL, or did you make that up?

19 03 2010

Grrr. I probably should have hovered my cursor over the photos before I asked that question. Nice preemptive work, there.

Question: When I read ‘horizontal bar’ should I be thinking ‘barre’?

19 03 2010
Storbz

Hahahaha love the codeword. Credit where credit is due, that was pure genius on the part of the promoters…although they missed the opportunity to spell it with a “z”. I daresay the bogan wouldn’t even recognise the plural form without it.

19 03 2010

It’s been tried…

When the Ballet Boyz became Dadz
“Lippy, brash and unshaven, the Ballet Boyz were a dance phenomenon. Now, as they enter their 40s, they’re launching their boldest venture yet…”

Good lord. It’s actually true. I thought BoyTown was just an amusing film.

20 03 2010

BoyTown seems to be coming true…With the resurgence of New Kids On The Block, and other such crappy boy bandz from the 80’s. ‘Special time of the month…” too much…

19 03 2010
Sibyl Ince

Ahhh, the notion that things can be done before they’re done; tickets pre-booked, items pre-purchased, persons pre-qualified or pre-enrolled, though I have heard relatively normal people use these words, too.

19 03 2010
Simon

Further along this line I see The Angels are touring with the Tasmanian Orchestra? Long line with strings seems to be stretching things just a bit.

19 03 2010

Yep. It’s bizarre beyond imagination. It’s even weirder than when KISS did the symphony thing, because you kind of expected KISS to do that someday.

Kind of like “The String Quartet Tribute to Metallica” you can download from Amazon. I can’t think of what market is being targeted there…metal-loving cellists, maybe?

19 03 2010

Feast your eyes on this ‘Andre Rieu-esque doubling-down on lameness’

19 03 2010
loftie

There was that S&M concert with the orchestra and Metallica – which was quite well done… I’ve got the DVD and you can actually play the orchestra only or metallica only, or both… which is great…

Its so bogans can claim that they have ‘culcha & shit’ and that they do in fact listen to classical music…

19 03 2010
Sten

Why not? Have you ever heard “Master of Puppets” played on two harps? Beautiful in it’s own way…

I had a free ticket to see Meatloaf with Melb Symphony, Australian Boys Choir and a troupe of Cheerleaders dressed in black vinyl. Some kind of masochistic urge prevailed and I went. He had passed out in Hong Kong the week before, and I was hoping he would drop dead on stage,mid Bat out of Hell (he didnt though…) The old school boganity was mind boggling. An arena of heavyset middle aged bogues, dressed in Polyester shirts, with mullets accompanied by she-bogues in tight denim and lace. The entire arena reeked of a combination of dim sims, sweaty polyester and greasy hair to the point that I had to move seats to an empty section. It was the land that time forgot. I only wish I could.

I went to a performance of Led Zeppelin by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra a few years back and can honestly say it was amazing, so I’m loth to bag strings covering pop or rock music. Great post TBL; I’d never heard of his phenomonon until now.

Btw, is my enjoyment of Led Zeppelin a bogan trait?

19 03 2010
Fiona of Toorak

LOL. Yes. Yes it is.

19 03 2010
Simon

Harsh, I would give a pass as long as you think Stairway is a lesser work.

19 03 2010
Sten

Indeed. Though I suspect it is a Bogan hallmark to claim a love of Led Zeppelin despite only being familiar with Stairway. Give me Immigrant Song (It’s mere titel would probably put the Bogues off) or No Quarter any day.

Kashmir.

Reminds me of a boganette at my work who got very excited with the Led Zep reunion concert a couple of years ago & announced she was going to try & fly to London to see it.
I asked her ‘Wow I didn’t know you were a huge fan. I wonder if Jason Bonham will be playing drums’
“Who?’ she replied
‘You know, John Bonham’s son’
‘John who?…’ she again replied

19 03 2010
Shirley M

Not bogan. Unless of course you have LZ tattoos and/or t shirts.

19 03 2010
Snag

I certainly have neither Zeppelin t-shirts nor tats. And Stairway is a lesser work compared to genius like Kashmir, All My Love and Immigrant Song.

19 03 2010
Shirley M

…What is and What Should Never Be.

You’ve got the bogan all clear.

19 03 2010

Cheers! I’m indebted to you and your boganometers for giving me a clean bill of health.

20 03 2010
chubbybloodfart

Enjoyment of Zeppelin is ok for persons of a certain age (we all had our golden years). The love of Zeppelin is more closely aligned with the old school bogan – and they’re just plain cute!
(With the li’l flannos, and the mullets and their fluffy boots. Bless ’em!)
I think the modern bogue musical predilections run more along the lines of your nicklebacks and your pinks and such. That’s more of your modern formulaic tripe. Your zeppelins and such are the ones who made the formula

methinks.

19 03 2010
Shirley M

I hope you don’t mind if I use the phrase ‘creating an Andre Rieu-esque doubling-down on lameness’ at any given opportunity, TBL. I’m quiet fond of it.

Not a problem at all. Take it to the people. TBL

19 03 2010

Just do it on the quiet Shirl.

19 03 2010
Robbie

I can hear all the fem-bogues now declaring to the world how ‘kulcha’d’ they are because they saw this…and how their male-bogue was dragged to it with the promise of hearing rock music but complained about all the fags on stage.

19 03 2010
Gorey

I didn’t know this existed until I read this post. Now I’m very sad.

19 03 2010

Same here. This is just… there are no words to describe the awfulness. The existence of such a thing could swing me into atheism because no benevolent god would allow such a thing.

19 03 2010
James

Even a spite-filled, vengeful god would not allow this.

19 03 2010

It could be heralding the end times.

Perhaps St John saw this, but thought it too horrible to write down.

could it be one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse?

Same here. This blog is very educational. I have learned of many things that I had no inkling existed. Thank-you TBL 🙂

19 03 2010

I’m not so sure.

I’ve learned stuff here I’d rather not know.

I’m sure I’m not the only one.

19 03 2010

Having said that, this site is more than worth the occasional pain and glassings.

Oh, and much of the horror can be found in the comments section.

Oh – by the by – is there an official place to send suggestions for future entries? I though I saw an email address posted somewhere. Google isn’t helping.

Agreed, this is the first post I’ve read without thinking, “Oh, yes!”

Oh, I didn’t know what Ed Hardy was either, but I’ve since noticed a shop I never saw before (somehow it hadn’t even registered on my radar).

I’m just glad that at least some of the horrors don’t penetrate my world.

it seems no art-form is safe from the masterminds that can re-create things for the common bogan…they even got to ballet!

19 03 2010

I think this could be a good thing.

Say you are a fan of Ballet. Perhaps this thingy here provides enough money to subsidise the truer forms of the art.

Kyle Sandilands is a cunt that is dire need of a glassing…anyone seen Simon?

19 03 2010

Yeah… where is he when you need him? Unless he’s pre-emptively glassed that bloated sack of lizard-droppings and is now before the Magistrate…

19 03 2010

if that’s the case, I hope the Magistate would show some understanding based on the community service performed through said glassing 😛

19 03 2010

Agreed.

I’ve been busy today. I am reluctant to glass as Brad told me I was lame yesterday for said glassings. That being said if I saw Sandipants and a VB stubby at the same time I would say fuck Brad and the horse that bought him and give Kyle what he deserves.

Cool, was the class bit intentional?

By that I meant maybe you have invented a new method of dealing with Bogans in a less brutal manner. We could stun them with our class.

“the lameness of ballet with the lameness of Lenny Kravitz and Coldplay”

Gold.

How is it that figure skating is a “sport” and ballet isn’t?

19 03 2010
Nelson Esq

One could argue that ‘Riverdance’ and the ‘Lord of the Dance’ in the 1990’s were the first dance ‘stage spectaculars’ to appeal to the bogan. Just like St Patrick’s Day, it appealled to the bogans perceived Irishness.

19 03 2010
Will S

Fans of actual traditional Irish music react much the same way to that stuff as the posters above have to RtB.

19 03 2010
Sibyl Ince

“One could argue that ‘Riverdance’ and the ‘Lord of the Dance’ in the 1990’s were the first dance ’stage spectaculars’ to appeal to the bogan.”

I thought they went for the sweat-flinging fest that was ‘Tap Dogs’.

19 03 2010
Nelson Esq

I could see how femme-bogues would like Tap Dogs, they being fit guys in tight blue singlets and Blundstones. However, the male-bogue would have automatically labeled them as ‘pooftas!’ The Tap dogs would have been (retrospectively) a bit Brokeback Mountain for the male bogan.

Where would Rhonda Burchmore be without ‘classic’ stage productions that bogans love…

(she’ll definately be part of the Hey Hey its Saturday revival)…

Infact, with the show making a comeback this year – that is definately a future TBL entry…

How dare you insult classical ballet by calling it lame (I expected more from the non bogan “cultured” mindset) haha. Ballet is an art form which takes endless hours to master, and even then you might not master it.

I can understand your need to bag rock ballet, but to call classical ballet lame you’re sounding like bogans yourselves.

19 03 2010

“Ballet is an art form which takes endless hours to master”.

h, I studied ballet and yes it takes years and years to be able to ‘master’ it (if you ever do) but I took it that TBL wasn’t really calling true classical ballet bogan, but more the horror of combining rock music and ballet to get the bogan bucks. (correct me if I am wrong TBL) I am trying to not to vomit at the thought. There should be a warning that this article could cause vomiting.

Maybe that explains the choreography I’ve seen when that dancing show on tele gets advertised. Frantic, frenetic, crazed and desperate to give the judges more, what a turn off.

Robbie, your replies will soon be lost as the space grows between your comments and those they were responding to, becoming hard to work out and seemingly irrelevant. Each comment has its own reply button, it’s much easier to follow conversations if used… 🙂

It’s like what has happened to musicals recently. They all seem to be either remakes of bad movies ie -priscilla, or taking songs from a popular artist and sewing a halfbaked story to work with it. Ie- mamma mia. Are they just accepting they make more money appealing to the bogan market, or are they so devoid of fresh ideas that they have to do an Andy warhol and appropriate other peoples work? … or both?

“this isn’t fucking rock” haha yeah they are probably hoping for acca dacca ready to glass some c*** afterwards.

Do Bogans even listen to rock anymore?

Last I heard the bogan rock stations were dying off, with more folks listening to talk-back crap and 2dayFM, and the charts are full of mostly naked women.

Maybe it’s been relegated to traditional bogans.

19 03 2010

CBF, can you translate CM’s post…Still I have no idea what the hell he is saying. I think he is flirting with Fiona.

CM, we only have an implied freedom of speech. We don’t live in America.

Sorry Fi, it was best that it came from me and not him…I figure this way you’ll know that he’s flirting with you!! Well at least that is my guess anyway. :*

Just recently (Under the influence of a jazz cigarette) I was pondering why it is I don’t like ballet and it occurred to me that Dancing (of any type) is something you DO, as opposed to something you watch.
The same as golf or MixedMartialArts.
So ballet IS lame.
Unless you’re doing it.

IMHO.

(…and arent these little chatroom acronyms getting a bit bogan? I mean it was all good fun on the BBS back in the nineties, but now bogans and children put them in their texts…)

Yes I agree. These acronyms are indeed getting a bit bogan. A little bit of me dies when I see lol. See, now I hate myself for typing it.

I did Jazz Ballet when I was five and living in Germany, I’m not sure exactly what ‘real’ Jazz Ballet is but my vague recollection of the German interpretation had me running around in a long, multi coloured Spanish dress at the end of year recital alternately pretending to be a bull or a matador. It was not sexualised in the slightest, but disturbing nonetheless.
