Roxy Rothafel was a New Yorker who had just opened the
new Roxy Theater. After seeing the Rockets, he knew that this was just the group
he wanted for his theater. Roxy doubled the groups size and changed their names
to the Roxyettes. Eventually, the name was changed to the current Rockettes.
At present there are more than 150 members of the Rockettes,
allowing the famous dance group to not only perform their New York Show at
Radio City Music Hall, but also to tour the nation, delighting audiences all
over with their famous kick line.
