WCU dance students to honor the Rockettes

Western Carolina University students will perform “A Salute to Rockette History” on 4:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in the Niggli Theatre at WCU.

The show is choreographed and produced in part by Karyn Tomczak, director of WCU’s dance program and a former Rockette herself. Ten WCU dance students will perform numbers ranging from “Dream Girls,” which honors the idea that the Rockettes were Russell Markert’s dream girls, to a tribute to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.

The performance will be held in conjunction with the Undergraduate Expo that showcases student research. The event is free and open to the public. 828.227.3672 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or stageandscreen.wcu.edu.
