There is something oddly pleasing to see a bunch of objects fall down in a domino-like effect. Whether it is actual domino tiles or something like toy soldiers, seeing them fall in perfect succession is almost spine-tingling. Many have attempted to perform such a feat, but only one dance group has managed to practice and perfect the move – the famed Rockettes!
The dance group has become almost synonymous with Christmas and the Nutcracker ballet. But even if you have never actually been to the ballet to watch the 200-year-old classic Christmas performance, the Rockettes will literally enthrall you with their own!
Dressed like toy soldiers, with the recognizable white pants, red shirts and plumed hats, the girls are lined up and facing the prop cannon. Their leader give them the ‘cue’ by blowing towards them and one by one all 36 dancers begin to fall backwards into each other’s arms.
Now mind you that this is no ordinary feat and they don’t just topple down. Instead, like is an agonizingly slow trust fall, the girls fall into each other’s arms, up until a point where about 10 of them are propped on one another. They go as slow as the music allows them and the audience is in a trance!
What really made their collapse on stage so fascinating was that not only did the girls look like actual toy soldiers, but the fall was so realistic, it almost got us fooled, too! Simply brilliant!
