Derek Hough Takes Radio City Music Hall

When you add two awesome and successful things together, they're bound to create an even more awesome result. Such is the combination of the Radio City Rockettes' Spring Spectacular + Derek Hough. The ballroom superstar will cha cha across that giant stage when the show opens in NYC this March. (Okay, I don't actually know what kind of dance he'll be doing, but that's just how I imagine it.) Turns out, the Rockettes are gearing up for a Christmas Spectacular-level spring blowout: The show will also feature Whoopi Goldberg and choreography by Mia Michaels.

We're pretty excited, not only because Derek Hough has already displayed his diverse interests and talents in different dance styles (hip hop, and ballet, and ballroom, oh my!)—which makes us wonder what exactly he'll be doing onstage—but also because we're always happy to see our favorite leggy ladies get more stage time. No to mention, this means one more Rockette-themed show that you can potentially audition for, amirite?

So get those tickets now, because the show only runs from March 26 through May 12!

Beat the Cheat: Combat Incorrect Jump Landings With These Targeted Fitness Exercises

As dancers, we all have our vices—those little technique cheats that we know are incorrect, and we try our best to fix whenever we can remember...but at the end of the day, we just can't seem to banish them for good. After all, these cheats usually appear to help us: They can get our legs higher and our petit allégro a little faster, not to mention help us crank out that one extra rotation in a turn we dream about. Unfortunately, cheating proper technique also sets dancers up for a myriad injuries caused by improper alignment and undue stress on the body.
