THE RADIO CITY ROCKETTES – PERFECT VISIT FOR PERFORMING ARTS STUDENT GROUPS
Radio City Music Hall has been a host to the lively, elegantly choreographed Rockettes for nearly 75 years.
Christmas in New York is a magical time when the best New York attractions transform into the most festive winter wonderlands. The streets of New Year are decorated in festive style, music seems to drift from every corner, parks are transformed into winter wonderlands with ice skating rinks and Christmas trees, and visitors come from around the world to experience the hustle and bustle of the city at its peak.
During the holidays, one of the New York’s most iconic performance is the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes. The 90-minute performance is still performing to sold-out crowds. Radio City Music Hall has welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors to witness the magic of the Rockettes. There is no better place than Radio City Music Hall to share joy, laughter, and lasting memories as you take in the legendary precision and grace of the Rockettes.
When it comes to planning for student groups, New York City is full of choices. If you plan to visit during the holiday season, a trip to Radio City Music Hall is a must. Students will witness not just a performance of incomparable talent and originality, but also have an opportunity to see one of America’s best-known venues, which continues to host concerts, performances and televised events all year around.
The Radio City Rockettes will amaze students with a perfectly choreographed picture of Santa’s reindeer, the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers, along with other classics and re-imagined old favourites.
STUDENT GROUPS AT RADIO CITY MUSIC
Radio City Music Hall also caters for school groups to maximise their Rockettes experience. Special tours designed for school groups will take their visit to the next level and will engage students to bring an added level of appreciation to the Radio City Music Hall experience. Students can take a Rockettes 101 workshop. Designed for all ages and requiring no previous dance experience, it will give students the unique opportunity to take a class with the Rockettes in their rehearsal hall, taught by the dancers themselves.
Another popular student group option is the Stage Door Tour. Students will discover Radio City’s Art Deco masterpieces, learn the history of the Great Stage and even have the chance to meet a Rockette. For an enhanced experience, the Radio City Music Hall Stage Door VIP Tour is available for a group of up to 20 people and goes beyond the traditional Stage Door Tour which include a visit to the rehearsal halls, a complete view of the elegant Roxy Suite or a tour of the lighting projection room. For student groups the Career Educational Tour is an insight that incorporates the Stage Door Tour with perception into the behind-the-scenes of the Radio City Music Hall.
When it comes to visiting New York City with students, it can feel like there may be too much to do and not enough time. But visiting Radio City Music Hall is a holiday-season must. The Rockettes’ mastery, talent and grace, along with the iconic stage will give the students greater appreciation for the arts.
