Behind-the-Scenes in the Rockettes Ode to “New York, New York”

Starting spreading the news…

Way before Jay Z and Alicia Keys got people in an Empire State of Mind, Frank Sinatra was setting the mood for loving the bright lights of the big city with his rendition of “New York, New York.” From the opening bars to the closing lines, no song comes close to capturing the wonder of it all like “New York, New York,” so naturally it had to be included in the New York Spring Spectacular.

Head behind-the-scenes of the new show as the Rockettes practice their modern moves to a classic song. The dance stars don top hats and tails while getting down to the routine set to an uptown beat. This is just a rehearsal, though, so if you want to be a part of it, come on through, New York, New York, and head straight to Radio City Music Hall for the New York Spring Spectacular.
