MY LIFE AS A ROCKETTE



(im the third from the left)

Well food is always exciting... but the main reason I took a break form this blog for such a long time was becuase I (as most of you know) am a Radio City Rockette.

This season was especially exciting for me because it was my fi
rst time performing on the great stage at Ra
dio City Music Hall. (in past years I did the national tour of the show)

So... I wanted to share some of the exciting events that I experienced during my season

Well this year I was lucky enough to be chosen to promote the show on what we call a media tour. I got to travel to Baltimore, Washington DC, and Virginia to spread the word about the show (the tour was going to hit all three of these places) by doing television, radio, and print interviews.. as well as making appearences and meeting as many people as we could.

Here we are at the Washington Monument with a war veteran...(there were hundreds of them there and they all had fabulous stories to share)
Im the second girl in from the right :)
Here I am at our nations capital!We caused quite a comotion here heheh but its a cute picture
 Here we are in Baltimore at an adorable old fashioned ice cream parlor
Here we are in DC at an underprivelaged childrens school.. they were so excited to have us there and they asked the most hillarious questions :)Here I am (im the one in all black) teaching a class to a bunch of kids on Long Island (where im from!)

I know these are a lot of pictuers.. but here are some of my favs from rehearsal to stage!

This is our ragdoll number... its fun because we get to be silly... it ends with a jump split... and yes.. jump splits hurt haha
This number is called "Shine" the costumes are covored in Swarovski crystals... absolutely beautiful... you cant really see my face.. but our kicks look real good :)
rehearsing the "bus" part of new york at christmas.. im on the bottom.. third from the rightSome of my friends and I during a rehearsal at the music hallthis is the beginning of "Shine" think its hard to find me huh... ok look at the top.. no the VERY TOP.. ya thats me... and let me tell you its REALLY HIGH!!here we are practicing our famous fall of the wooden soldiers.... its hard to spot me.. but im the one thats mid fall... if you count from the beginning of the picture, im the 8th one in!

Oh my gosh! I just stumbled upon your blog and I love it! You have a new fan!! I was a dancer all my life, and my one unfulfilled dream was to be a Rockette. It's so fun to see your rehearsal pictures, and it's so great that you're vegan! I run a vegan blog too - http://bankruptvegan.blogspot.com/
Looking forward to reading your blog!
By the way, my husband bought me the "Spectacular" DVD for Christmas. (I saw it live in 1992 when I was in NYC to perform in the Macy's parade, with my college dance team, and have never forgotten it.) Are you in the DVD?
