Rockettes Summer Intensive Auditions
If you aren’t already familiar with the Rockettes Summer Intensive, let me explain. It is a week-long program, running June 24 – August 3, 2012, hosted at Radio City Music Hall in the actual studios where the Rockettes rehearse for their starring roles in the annual production of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.
Dancers accepted into the program rehearse daily from 9:30am to 5:30pm, with group education seminars in the evenings. This distinctive style transcends a multitude of dance disciplines including jazz, tap, musical theater, lyrical and of course the legendary Rockettes kick line. The curriculum focuses on original choreography and formations from the Rockette repertoire that will culminate in a student showcase. To be considered for the Rockettes Summer Intensive, dancers must be at least 14 years of age (by June 22, 2012) with a minimum of 5 years training in tap, jazz, and ballet.
Here’s the current audition schedule:
