Watching the world-famous Radio City Rockettes perform their annual Christmas Spectacular is one of New York City’s most beloved holiday traditions, and while we’re generally not ones to mess with tradition, we’re all for it when it involves Rebecca Minkoff and her cast of hilarious fashion friends!
Returning this year with another side-splitting holiday video, the New York designer and pals Hilary Rhoda, John Jannuzzi of Lucky Magazine, Hannah Bronfman, Annie Georgia Greenberg of Refinery29, Jamie Chung, DJ Cassidy and Jane Keltner de Valle of Teen Vogue, put their high-kicking skills to the test in an audition to become the next Rockette dancers. Filmed at Radio City, the cheeky holiday video sees Team Minkoff put through the ringer with two real life Rockettes, as they set out to realize their dreams of becoming high-kicking, Christmas dancing machines. For her part, Hilary shines (literally) in the eyes of the Rockettes, and seems to hold her own in the group’s final performance, which we’ll admit, looks pretty difficult. As John Jannuzzi explains it, “There’s all of these spins, steps and turns, and then you have to get sassy with things.”
We dare you not to crack a smile watching these sassy “Rockettes in Training” below!
