"Our dance education programs are invaluable for dancers and one of the best training tools for these talented Rockette hopefuls who strive to become part of the legendary Dance Company."
The Rockettes Summer Intensive is a weeklong program, running June 15-August 8 and hosted in the actual studios where The Rockettes rehearse for their starring roles in the annual production of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular as well as their upcoming spring production, Heart & Lights, opening in March 2014. Dancers accepted into the program rehearse daily from 9:30am to 5:30pm, learning iconic Rockettes choreography. This distinctive style transcends a multitude of dance disciplines including jazz, tap, musical theater and of course the famous Rockettes kick line.

To be considered for The Rockettes Summer Intensive, dancers must be at least 14 years of age (by June 15, 2014) with a minimum of 5 years training in tap, jazz, and ballet and must attend a live audition or submit a video audition.
