Dancing In the Street: Santa's Helper

Christmas presents, and Halloween still weeks away? No, this presentation at Dancing In the Street was about what it takes to become one of the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall's Christmas Spectacular in New York City. Sounds like a huge amount of work, high risk of disappointment, a warm torso and chilly legs. I do remember going to the show as a kid and being blown away by it, or maybe more so by the theater, by far the largest in the U.S.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO IN JAPAN: the vending machines. Japan has one vending machine for every 23 inhabitants and they sell almost anything. At the end of a hard day of tourism, I'm grateful for the beer vending machines in almost every hotel. Oh, and Boss Coffee in cans. That's what I need on my way to work.

TOMORROW: I got rhythm.
Well, no, that's a lie. They do. I don't.

Hot ramen in a vending machine. I'd back off that one. Speaking of hot, well I am sure it was very educational hearing about the long hard road to becoming a Rockette! You betcha!

I thought there was something vaguely familiar about that posture. I went to Radio city Music Hall as a child, saw the dancers and was thrilled, and then they showed a movie, Come Blow Your Horn. As an 8 year old in 1963 I thought that was the most amazing display I had ever seen.

I've been off Christmas for many years but after seeing this pic I'm rethinking my stance.
