Every step brings you closer to your dream!

The Radio City Rockettes believe that it is important to educate young aspiring dancers about the skills and talents necessary to pursue a career in dance, as well as encourage them to pursue their dreams. Therefore, we are proud to present innovative dance education programs. The Rockette Summer Intensive and The Rockette Experience offer dancers the opportunity to train with the Rockettes. Both programs allow hopeful dancers to get a glimpse into the life of a Rockette and gain a sense of the excitement, challenges and joys that come along with being part of the world’s most famous precision dance company.
