the stereotype

The Rockettes are like a synchronised swim team without the water. I hadn’t heard of them until last Christmas (some humming went on after typing that), because each year they do a Christmas Spectacular. They managed to capture every cliche about Christmas in New York – ice skating in Central Park, strolling down avenues with shopping bags, the doubledecker tour buses, the department store Santa and performances of The Nutcracker. It was absolutely amazing to see, so if you can get over the fact that synchronised swimming isn’t a sport and just see it as an art form it is pretty spectacular.
