Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the legendary Radio City Rockettes first kicked to life in 1925 as the "Missouri Rockets," this New York City institution has been a force in entertainment, and has become a beloved national treasure. From their starring roles in The Radio City Christmas Spectacular and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade to their USO performances and appearances at iconic events such as presidential inaugurations, these leggy performers have danced their way into the hearts of millions of people around the world.

In The Radio City Rockettes: A Dance through Time, peek backstage and get a glimpse of the rich and storied history of this famed dance troupe. The lushly beautiful portraits of photographer James Porto capture the glamour and beauty of the dancers, as well as their magnificent, show-stopping costumes—created by some of the greatest designers of the day, including Bob Mackie, Erté (father of the Art Deco design movement), and Vincente Minnelli.

The white marabou hats, sparkling red sequins, top hats and tails, the instantly-recognizable "wooden soldiers" outfits, and dozens more are all brought to vivid life. Photographs from Radio City's vast archives provide a special look at the Rockettes' landmark home, Radio City Music Hall, allow the elegance and grandeur of Donald Deskey's interior design to leap off the page.

With The Radio City Rockettes: A Dance through Time, the beauty, talent, and spirit of the Radio City Rockettes is yours in a beautiful keepsake, for you to treasure or to share with someone special.

Synopsis:

Most people know the Rockettes from their annual appearance in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and from their Christmas Spectacular Show. Not only are the Rockettes the world's finest precision dancers, they are part of America's history. Explore the glamour, hard work and events that make the Rockettes the dance troupe that they are today. This photo journey begins with one man's dream and evolves into the legacy of the women who are today's Rockettes. From the magnificent Radio Music Hall to the dance routines, costumes, sets and movie premiers.... Everything that influenced the Rockettes is here.
