P.S. (Changing tone): I can add this to my rather short list of other theatrical claps -- saving Tinkerbell after being asked "clap your hands if you believe in fairies." I do! I do!

and Helene, you're SO RIGHT!
in fact, the Trocks version of Raymonda is almost straight, it needs some jokes....
But they can DO it.
I'm suddenly picturing Mark Mrris doing hte Arabian ance in the Hard nut -- remember, he claps his hands and his houris fall down dead, one by one.... DIvine imperiousness.
The Trocks could try that, too.
In nureyev's version, there's a high table full of grandees upstage of hte dancers -- every time she clapped, someone could fall over into their cups. i think I'd have to laugh at that -- the devil would make me do it.

I remember the house trembled a little when Monique Meunier danced the lead in Balanchine's Cortege at NYCB. A perfect role for her.... Such a long time ago... sigh... Monique just recently danced Dewdrop with SAB's Stamford, CT, performances.... She looked...not in shape... to be polite.
>>From your post to the Trocks' ear...
That would be so hilarious!!! I may send a note over there...
