This year has seen many of us staying at home. The boredom has been rampant and many of us might have turned to comfort eating to get through the year. Naturally, this has meant that some of us might have found our pants getting slightly tighter. In addition, it’s the holiday season which is notorious for all the added calories that come with it.
But if you’ve been wanting to get ahead of the January New Year’s Resolution to get back in shape, then you might be interested to know that the Radio City Rockettes have been on Instagram Live with video instructions that show you how to do some of the choreographed dances from their annual holiday show, “Radio City Christmas Spectacular.”
Each video lesson is live each Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET – every week until Christmas. The lessons are held on their Instagram page and remain live until the lesson is over. The sessions are about 50 to 60 minutes in length. They also have a Q&A segment at the end.
Given that this year is unprecedented because of the current pandemic, the classes are a wonderful way for the dancers to stay connected with their fan base since their live holiday performances have had to be cancelled. As Rockette, Danelle Morgan, said to Shape, “With everything going on in the world right now, it became apparent that we needed to throw a little holiday spirit into the social media world. It’s been so rewarding that, despite not having the Christmas show this year, we’ve been able to bring some holiday cheer and joy to our fans.”
The classes have varied in advancement, with some being easier than others. But either way, they have been very fun for those looking to get in the holiday spirit as well as in shape. Plus, who wouldn’t want to learn how to high kick just like a Rockette? Morgan added that while times are tough at the moment, it’s important to still be able to find something enjoyable. So if you need a little bit of dancing to feel better about the current situation, perhaps the Rockette class is just what you need – what do you think?SKM: below-content placeholder
