Radio City Rockettes’ ‘Christmas Spectacular’ costumes

Consider it a legacy of legs — and high kicks.

The Radio City Rockettes, stars of the “Christmas Spectacular,” and arguably the world’s most famous precision dance team, have performed on The Great Stage since 1933, ushering in the holiday season each year with their signature eye-high kicks delivered in a chorus line.

The dance moves of the 80-member troupe — whose routines range from jazz, tap and ballet sequences to contemporary styles — highlight not only the physical demands of their rigorous routines but the splendor behind the seams of their signature looks.

Here, we take a look at five of the eight costumes from the famed Christmas show.
