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!

How Project 21 Is Shaping the Next Generation of Competition-Dance Standouts

"I wish I had a better story about the name," says Molly Long, founder of the Orange County, CA–based dance studio Project 21. In truth, it's a play on the fact that she was born on the twenty-first of August, and 21 is her favorite number. "I was away on a teaching tour, the audition announcement was going live on Instagram the next day, and I desperately needed a name. Project 21 was just the least cheesy of the options I thought of!"

The fact that fans might expect the name to have some profound meaning speaks to the near-mythic status Project 21 has achieved on the competition and convention scene since its founding in 2014. Long's dancers are all wholly individual, yet jell seamlessly as a group, and are consistently snagging top prizes everywhere on the circuit. Each season brings a slew of new accolades, high-caliber faculty, and legions of devoted followers.

The industry has taken notice of the studio's unique ethos. "Molly gets through to her dancers in a special way, and they have this incomparable level of commitment to their craft as a result," says dancer and choreographer Billy Bell, who's worked closely with Long and her dancers. "That's what sets them apart—it's like a little dose of magic."

Beyond #Hamilfilm: 8 More Shows We'd Love to Stream During Quarantine

The professionally-shot film of Hamilton is smashing streaming records on Disney+, transforming any computer or TV in America into the Richard Rodgers Theatre. And while we understand that not every Broadway show has gorgeously-filmed footage on file, we can still dream: Could this be a new way to experience live theater, at least while Broadway remains closed? Here are eight other shows that we'd love to view from our living rooms.
