Rockettes’ Pick for Dancer of the Week: Charlie Brown
Who: Charlie Brown
Why we chose him: Good ol’ Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang made their 3D animation big-screen debut in early November when their film, The Peanuts Movie, hit theaters to commemorate the 65th anniversary of the beloved comic strip. While the movie brought back fond memories of the many television specials we grew up watching, it was Charlie’s breakdancing session during the Winter Dance that really left us in awe. No “good grief” here … Charlie’s got skills!
Fun fact: The movie, written by Craig and Bryan Schulz (Charles M. Schulz’s son and grandson, respectively), has been in the works since October 2012.
