The Rockettes Gear Up for 2013 RADIO CITY CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR with Tri-State Tour, 9/17-19
The Rockettes are gearing up for another awe-inspiring year of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and before they start rehearsals, two Rockettes will be visiting five dance schools in New Jersey, Long Island, Connecticut and Westchester (see schedule below) to teach master dance classes to groups of aspiring dancers. Following the Rockettes dance class, the dancers will submit a video of the choreography and enter a contest on the Radio City Christmas Spectacular Facebook page in which fans nationwide will vote for their favorite dance school. Each dance school will compete for the opportunity to win tickets to the 2013 Christmas Spectacular production as well as a private Rockettes Experience, a four-hour program at the famed Radio City Music Hall in which their dancers will learn original Rockettes choreography during a dance workshop, take a behind the scenes Radio City Stage Door Tour, participate in an exclusive Q&A and take photos with the Rockettes!
The Rockettes are a legendary dance company known for their rich history, unrivaled talent, strength, precision and athleticism. Their innovative choreography and classic glamour have been beloved by millions as they continue to be role models to generations of women.
