The Rockettes Rock the Today Show


To help mark the first day of spring, the stars of the New York Spring Spectacular stopped by Today to talk about the new show. Derek Hough and Laura Benanti spent a chilly spring morning at New York’s Rockefeller Center chatting with Today hosts Willie Geist and Savannah Guthrie about the show that Benanti describes as “a love letter to New York.”

Starring in the show, alongside Hough and Benanti are the Rockettes, who joined their co-stars on the set of the Today show to help spread the word about the new Spectacular. As a professional dancer, Hough is thrilled to be working alongside the legendary Rockettes on the Radio City Music Hall stage and the crowds outside of 30 Rock were thrilled to see their routine.

While Geist offered to show off his high kick, the Rockettes let him off the hook and instead braved the cold to show off some of their synchronized dance moves from the New York Spring Spectacular, including, of course a kick line.
