Absolutely love dance costumes? So do we! As Rockettes, our dance costumes—like the iconic Parade of the Wooden Soldiers—play a major role in our performances. From legendary numbers to brand new looks, dance fashion is one of the many reasons why we love being Rockettes! That's why we were thrilled to participate in the Project Runway Rockettes Challenge on the hit fashion TV show! Challenge winner Christopher Palu created gorgeous New York City-inspired dance costumes that we debuted at the christening of Norwegian Breakaway— the Norwegian Cruise Line ship of which we are the proud godmothers!
