🎄It was "Christmas in the City" for some of our dancers and their families as they traveled to NYC this past Sunday! The day started with a dance workshop with a former Rockette, where the dancers learned some of the Rockette's signature kickline steps, as well as learned what its like to audition to be a Rockette. They then spent the afternoon getting a behind-the-scenes look at Radio City Music Hall where they learned about the history and decor of the music hall, viewed rehearsal space and the costume shop, and experienced a meet-and-greet with a Rockette. The dancers and their families then watched The Christmas Spectacular show and ended the day with dinner at Hard Rock Cafe! 🎄

These are just some of the amazing women who work behind-the-scenes to ensure our show runs smoothly. They assist the students in getting their costumes on, help the dancers get to the stage on time, position the dancers on stage, calm nerves, wipe away tears, and encourage our dancers to do their best. Their job is not an easy one, and we are appreciative of all they do to make the show a success!

Congratulations to everyone involved on two amazing performances of Happily Ever After this weekend! The SDA staff is beyond proud of the dancers for their beautiful dancing and high-energy performances. You are all a joy to watch on stage! A big thank you also goes out to the backstage helpers, stage managers, stagehands, and ushers, who volunteered their time to ensure our show ran as smoothly as possible.
