Rockettes Pick for Dancer of the Week: ‘Star Wars’ Stormtroopers
Who: Star Wars Stormtroopers
Why we chose them: Two words: twerking Stormtroopers!
In honor of the latest installment of the Star Wars franchise, Disney and Lucasfilm unveiled the new Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens merchandise at Toys”R”Us in Times Square on Friday, Sept. 4 (aka “Force Friday”). Pumped over the toy bonanza, five booty-shaking Stormtroopers (the main ground-force of the Galactic Empire) in stifling armor couldn’t help but break it down.
Fun fact: This isn’t the first time the Stormtroopers made headlines. Back in January 2014, they “twerked” to the streets to escape the stress of working under Darth Vader’s command. And a few months later, the dance troupe made an appearance at the Stars of the Saga talk show at Star Wars Weekends 2014 and got their groove on to songs like “Let It Go” and “What Does the Fox Say.”
