THE ROCKETTES

Evergreen - - News -

While search­ing for in­for­ma­tion about a new light mu­sic CD we are com­pil­ing, specif­i­cally the fa­mous tune called Pa­rade of the Tin Soldiers ( Wooden Soldiers in some ver­sions), I came across a mar­vel­lous danc­ing troupe called The Rockettes who per­form the mu­sic as part of their bril­liant reper­toire.

De­scribed as a “pre­ci­sion dance com­pany” they were founded in St. Louis, Mis­souri in 1925, be­fore mov­ing six years later to the Ra­dio City Mu­sic Hall in Man­hat­tan, New York. With a mix­ture of bal­let, tap, jazz and mod­ern dance, their rou­tines are spec­tac­u­lar and nearly 500 hope­fuls au­di­tion ev­ery year. They also en­joy a huge tele­vi­sion fol­low­ing so look them up and watch their su­perb ren­der­ing of Pa­rade of the Tin Soldiers.

The Rockettes at the end­ing of their chore­ographed show­piece Pa­rade of the Tin Soldiers as one by one they slowly col­lapse back­wards.
