Kick Line

When I was 13 or 14, I went on a bus trip to New York with my scoutmaster and saw the Rockette's Christmas spectacular and living nativity and there's no doubt that those synchronized leg kicks are impressive. What's more impressive is the absolutely grueling physical toll placed on the dancers (1,500 kicks in a 5-show day). Seeing the billboard and all of the other Rockettes advertising reminded me of a 2005 NY Times feature that looked at a day in the life of a Rockette during the holiday season..
