The original Christmas Spectacular was a half-hour long. Today, the show has expanded to 90 minutes of classic tap dancing, high kicks and sparkling costumes, along with newer elements like 3-D animation and pyrotechnics.
The Rockettes kick around 300 times per show. During busy seasons, they can perform in up to four shows. That equals 1,200 kicks a day!
During the “12 Days of Christmas” and “Rag Dolls” tap routines, the Rockettes wear dance shoes equipped with special sound transmitters that amplify the tap sounds for the audience.
