There’s nothing more quintessentially "Christmas in New York" than seeing the Rockettes perform live at Radio City Music Hall. That’s probably why demand for tickets is so high — the dancers often perform four or more times per day, which is no small physical feat, considering all the kicking and acrobatics that go into a show.
