The Rockettes are the world’s most famous precision dance company. Widely known as one of New York City’s most illustrious and beloved icons, they are legendary for their precision dance and eye-high kicks. The Rockettes are the stars of the Christmas Spectacular—a show that is seen by more than one million people annually and has played in more than 60 cities across North America.

From performances on Dancing with the Stars and the Tony Awards to Super Bowl Halftime Shows and Presidential Inaugurations, the Rockettes are above anything else—stars.

Learn more about the Rockettes storied history here.

There are 36 Rockettes onstage at a time. There are also four “swings” who can fill in the spots for nine of the women on the line.

Unfortunately, there are no plans for a touring production at this time. Hope you can join us in New York City at Radio City Music Hall!

Rockettes must be between 5’6″ and 5’10 ½” (measurements are taken in stocking feet) and proficient in ballet, tap and jazz.

Auditions for the Christmas Spectacular are held each summer in New York City. Please check here for updates.

The 2018 production of the Christmas Spectacular was technologically transformed with the addition of an all-new finale scene and redesigned elements.

Attendees of the Christmas Spectacular can shop for merchandise at our stands located on all levels inside Radio City Music Hall. Everyone can shop at our Radio City Store located next to the Box Office on 6th Avenue.

Before each Christmas Spectacular performance, you can take a photo with a Rockette in the lobby of Radio City Music Hall. In addition, you can also meet a Rockette by taking the Stage Door Tour.
