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.
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.
