Some Rockettes Refuse to Perform at Chump Crowning

Best wedding I ever attended was at one of the Rockette’s wedding, who happened to be a family relation. Learned more about dancing that one night than in a lifetime of not wanting to appear to have two left feet.

‘If I had to lose my job over this, I would’: Some of the Rockettes are refusing to perform at Trump’s inauguration

Some members of the Radio City Rockettes dance troupe are worried they could lose their jobs if they don’t perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration in January.

And the decision whether to perform at Trump’s ceremony is causing tension within the group, one of the dancers said in aninterview with Marie Clairepublished on Tuesday.

The union representing the iconic dancers apparently made the group’s Jan. 20 performance optional, after public backlash over reports they would be forced to perform at Trump’s inauguration, according to the dancer, whom Marie Claire assigned the pseudonym, “Mary.”

“The majority of us said no immediately,” Mary told the magazine. “Then there’s the percentage that said yes, for whatever reason — whether it’s because they’re young and uninformed, or because they want the money, or because they think it’s an opportunity to move up in the company when other people turn it down.”

“If I had to lose my job over this, I would. It’s too important,” she said.
