Here’s What It Takes to Be Rockette-Ready

November 22, 2023

Ever wondered how the Rockettes achieve those classic sky-high kick lines and intricate movements that culminate in a dazzling array of precision dance routines? We’re pulling back the velvety curtains so you can get a sneak peek of the world-famous troupe in rehearsal.

This year, 14 new Rockettes were welcomed from nine states—New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Florida, Massachusetts, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah—through the Rockettes Conservatory, the company’s no-fee, week-long intensive training program that serves as an inclusive talent pipeline for the group.

From now through January 1, 2024, you can watch the Rockettes live in action at the beloved Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
