Bright and bold tinsel deck the mall. The annual showing of Rudolph has been announced on prime-time. The empty street corners are laden with evergreen trees, wreaths, and boughs. Yet, nothing quite says, “Christmas is here!” like THE Christmas Spectacular, especially the high-kicking, jaw-dropping stars of the show, The Rockettes!
When they announced a visit to Atlanta for the second year in a row, I was ecstatic. I was also determined to bring my (eighty-something year-young) Mother-in-Law who remembers them from her days as a child growing up in New Jersey. Imagine my elation when we were given the opportunity to not only see the show, but dance with a real Rockette beforehand!
Melinda Farrell, who has been dancing with this precision team for several years, graciously spent an hour with a small group of us (age 5 to 85.) After a long muscle stretch we learned a fun step-routine. There were pops and pivets, turns and twirls! She showed us two types of kicks and the magical step of the Toy Soldier dance. That was special, since every Rockette since 1932 has performed Toy Soldier for audiences across the country.
The Rockettes have left Atlanta, but they are still traveling and possibly on their way to your city!

I really appreciate the team at GoGosqueeZ who made this night possible. The opinions here are honest and completely my own. But really, who doesn’t love watching (and dancing with) the Rockettes? The Rockettes and GoGosqueeZ make it fun to #GoGoPlayfully with your whole family.
