Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring The Rockettes: A NYC Holiday Tradition

Leave a Comment
I've been back from New York City only a few days, but I miss it so much. It was a wonderful trip, as all trips to NYC are, and we had an incredible stay at the Langham Place, right on 5th Avenue.

A highlight of our weekend in New York City was being invited to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, starring the Rockettes. This season marks the 83rd (!!!) year of the production, and it's  one of America's most beloved and anticipated holiday shows—and a family tradition.

The Christmas Spectacular first hit the stage on December 21, 1933 at Radio City Music Hall, and since then, over 75 million people have enjoyed the show.

And what a show it was...

The 2015 edition featured the dazzling, incredible Rockettes and their popular dance numbers, including everyone's favourite, The Parade of The Wooden Soldiers.

In 2012, while I was in NYC for the annual BlogHer conference, I was invited to dance with the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall with some of my other blogger friends. I've had incredible opportunities and experiences over the years of my blogging career, but dancing in the studio at Radio City Music Hall with the Rockettes was the best. That day, we learned the steps to the Wooden Soldiers dance, and it was hard. Very hard. And we were only taught a small portion of this incredible routine.

The entire show was incredible, and my boys loved it. A lot. I'd post some videos I took of the show,  but I wouldn't want to ruin it for anyone else looking forward to seeing the show for the first time.

It's something you have to see for yourself. You'll see why everyone loves it, and why it's the best Christmas tradition of all. It got us in the holiday mood, instantly. It was truly spectacular.

The holiday season in New York City is everything you can imagine, with the entire city sparkling and alive with the lights and sounds of Christmas, and watching the legendary Rockettes do their thing on stage at Radio City Music Hall was the perfect way to end our NYC adventure.
