Houston Ballet's Newest "Office" Parody Stars an Actual Snake

June 13, 2017

The dancers at Houston Ballet really know how to go above and beyond the call of duty. Not only are they spectacular performers, but they have comedic chops—the dry, sarcastic kind we love—as seen in this new promotional video for La Bayadère. The company reimagined the famous ballet as a parody of the popular mockumentary series “The Office.”

What about the snake? Oh, it’s totally there, and we don’t mean as a fake prop. Check out the short below to see the dancers’ snake-handling skills in action. And if you’re as obsessed as we are, you’ll also want to watch Houston Ballet’s earlier “Office” parody for Cinderella.

Keep ’em coming, Houston, because we love when ballerinas aren’t afraid to show their funny bones.
