Turkey is great and all, but the best part of Thanksgiving? It's watching some truly fantastic dancing on television, courtesy the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. On Thursday, when your arms are sore from mashing potatoes and/or you need to escape crazy Aunt Linda, head to the living room to catch these super-dancey parade highlights:

New York City Ballet in George Balanchine's The Nutcracker (via @nycballet on Twitter)

We all suffer from Nutcracker fatigue sometimes. After a zillion performances, it's hard not to. But there's nothing to restore your little-kid sense of Nutcracker wonder like a look at the sheer scale of a world-class Nut.

New York City Ballet's iconic production of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker opens on Friday, and for the past week, the company has been Tweeting out some seriously eye-popping #NutcrackerNumbers. The stats cover everything from the number of jingle bells used on each Candy Cane costume (that'd be 144) to the watts of light used in the show's grand finale (ONE. MILLION. WATTS.).

Look, guys, we know: It is too darn early for holly-jolliness. But the Rockettes appeared on the "Today" show this morning to promote the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, and we can't help it—as soon as we see that iconic kickline, we start daydreaming about sleigh bells and mistletoe and gingerbread lattes.

What happens when legend Brian Friedman teaches at WilldaBeast and Janelle Ginestra's fabulous IMMA SPACE? A merging of the B Free and ImmaBEAST tribes that includes a mind-boggling number of A-list Hollywood dancers. Ryan Parma was there to capture the whole thing on film, and the result is basically the class video to end all class videos.

James Whiteside in "Starstruck" (via NOWNESS)

What word would you use to describe American Ballet Theatre principal/fashion icon James Whiteside's sense of style? Epic? Fabulous? How about...stellar?

Our favorite danseur has teamed up with NYC-based sneaker brand KOIO for "Starstruck," a new video that has a sneaker-clad Whiteside showing off his beautiful technique in a place "where the earth and the stars connect." Also featuring tattoo artist JonBoy and pro surfer Quincy Davis, and directed by Tyler Greco, it's a gorgeous intergalactic fantasy.

Ballerina Tanaquil Le Clercq's "The Ballet Cook Book"

Anyone who follows enough dancers on Instagram knows that we love to cook (and, like all good Insta users, to post pretty pictures of the delicious things we make). But dancer-chefs were a thing long before the internets. And there's no better evidence of that than Balanchine ballerina Tanaquil Le Clercq's delightful Ballet Cook Book, which turns 50 years old this year.

We'll be honest: After 25[,000,000] seasons, we didn't think "Dancing with the Stars" had any more tricks up its sequined sleeves. But then, last night, the show snapped us out of our spray-tan-fume–induced stupor by bringing back some of our favorite alums for the trio round. Another chance to see Laurie Hernandez and Alfonso Ribeiro and QUEEN KRISTI YAMAGUCHI strut their stuff on the ballroom floor? Yes! Yes please.
