The Rockettes Christmas Spectacular 2021 kicks off the holiday season in NYC, and it's one of the best Christmas things to do. A yearly tradition since 1933, the show couild not go on in 2020 because of health concerns related to COVID-19, but tickets are already on sale for the 2021 edition. This classic Christmas spectacle offers tap dancers, a flying Santa Claus and, of course, the world-famous synchronized precision dancing of the Rockettes. And that's not nearly all: If New York City Ballet's beloved production of The Nutcracker doesn’t have enough onstage camels for you, this show will fulfill that need. Here’s everything you need to know about getting tickets, the 60,000 pounds of props used and just how many hours of high kicking it takes to prepare for a show.
