More than 200. Here's more info. Merry, Merry.
The requirements today remain almost exactly as they were at the dance troupe’s inception. Since 1932, more than 3,000 women have danced as Rockettes®. Each year, in cities across America, hundreds of young women audition to be members of the internationally known troupe. Radio City Rockettes® must be between 5’6” and 5’10 _ and demonstrate proficiency in tap, jazz, ballet and modern dance. But exceptional dance skill alone is not enough to secure a coveted position on the dance line. They must also display a radiant energy that will shine across the footlights to their audience. The Radio City Rockettes® entered into the 21st Century with a new, fresh and contemporary flare, while exhibiting the same enthusiasm and vigor that has become their signature trademark. The Rockette line today embraces the diversity of women everywhere. The more than 200 women dance troupe embodies the modern-day woman – they are intelligent, strong, ambitious, multi-talented, beautiful, stylish, hip, fun, witty, fashionable, and not to mention they maintain the most physically fit bodies in the business. The Rockette line is made up of obviously dancers, but also businesswomen, fashion designers, students, actresses, volunteer workers, and young mothers – all who have learned to perfect the art of balancing a dance career with their careers off the stage. Endurance, perseverance and dedication have all contributed to their success in life and they proudly serve as role models for young women everywhere.Source(s): http://www.nationaldanceweek.org/n_rock.htm
