A Christmas First: ‘Brothers in the Big Apple’


riginally from Arizona, first-year Rockette Maile and her family have always dreamed of coming to New York City during Christmastime and spending the holidays together. When Maile got the chance to perform in this year’s Christmas Spectacular as a Rockette, she was ecstatic – but she missed her family back home. What she didn’t know was her family was comin’ to town!

“She is going to be so shocked when she sees that we’re here,” says Maile’s mom right before they surprised her during an interview (Maile thought that she was answering questions for a digital series, but little did she know that her family secretly flew in to see her take the Great Stage as a Radio City Rockette!).

The reunion was emotional and joy-filled—and her brothers couldn’t be prouder.

“To see her get her dream that she’s always wanted since she was a kid … I can’t put it into words.”
