Presenting the Rochettes!

Members of The Rochester Gay Men's Chorus

Rochester’s got TALENT! If you’ve not been to a Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus Concert you’ve been missing one of Rochester’s sought-after attractions – a dance troupe known as the “Rochettes”.

The Rochettes have been a part of RGMC’s concerts for over 20 years. These multi-talented, imaginative men not only sing, but also swing and sway, bump and grind, and tap dance into your hearts. Their tightly-choreographed moves are truly show-stopping!

Over the years they have touched on all kinds of dance from Tap, Swing, Jazz, Character, Country, Waltz, Broadway, Disco, Hip Hop, Lip-Sync, and many more. They continue to find ways to entertain and inspire their audience! Come and join them at a future concert, and see why RGMC and the “Rochettes” are all the rave!

Schedule of Dance Rehearsals

Rehearsals take place on Sunday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 PM September thru December, January thru March, and April thru June. Rehearsals are held at the TNT Dance Explosion located at 562 Titus Avenue #4.Please contact the RGMC office if you would like to become a Rochette by calling (585) 423–0650.
