The Radio City Rockettes are ready again to
put on their “Christmas Spectacular.”
The dancers prepare for 4 weeks in a studio
before 2 weeks of technical practice.
[Karen Keeler, a former Rockette and Director of Rockettes Creative]
"They are incredible athletes they work incredibly hard to do what they do. They are the only precision dance company that exists in terms of the quality of the work that they do,"
The ladies perform up to 300 kicks in one show.
That rehearsal includes learning
how to quickly change costumes.
[Sam Berger, 14-year veteran dancer]
"Dressing you would think would be complete chaos,
but it's very choreographed chaos in Rockette land."
The show began on Nov. 9 and will end on Jan. 1.
