Dancers audition to appear with Rockettes in NYC

Posted:
NEW YORK (AP) -

Hundreds of young women from around the world are kicking their dance routines into high gear in New York this week.

They're vying to appear with The Rockettes at the 2013 Radio City Christmas Spectacular.

The aspiring dancers lined up Tuesday on a Manhattan street outside Radio City Music Hall for the open audition. Their hair was pulled back. Their makeup was perfect, some batting fake eyelashes, and they all wore tan-colored, high-heeled shoes.

They were taken into a rehearsal studio to learn a dance routine, then performed three-by-three in front of a panel of judges.

Those who make it -- a good dozen or so -- will return for the show that runs from Nov. 8 to Dec. 30.
