It begins when you walk through the doors of the storied Radio City Music Hall. Perhaps you pause for a moment and stand to admire the art deco lobby before making your way to your seat. After a hush, the curtain slowly rises, the music swells, and Rockettes appear. In perfect unison they dance across the stage, mesmerizing in their precision. And just like that, you're transported to another place, where reindeer prance and dash through the snow, where rag dolls spring to life and wooden soldiers march in a fantastic parade. For a time, the hustle and bustle of the world outside disappear and you are reminded of the true meaning and spirit of the holiday season.
