The Rockettes are a legendary precision dance company founded in 1925 as the “Missouri Rockets”. By 1932, The Missouri Rockets were brought to New York City by showman S.L. (Roxy) Rothafel who slightly modified the name to The Rockettes. The Rockettes performed at the Radio City Music Hall for the first time on Dec. 27, 1932, and have performed there ever since. The Rockettes combine modern and classic ballet. There are 36 dancers, with the tallest woman in the center of the kick line, moving out to the shortest dancers on the ends, giving the illusion of uniform height. During the Christmas season the Rockettes present five shows a day, seven days a week. The Rockettes are best known for their high-kick chorus line that they perform at the end of every performance.
