Hundreds audition for chance to dance with Rockettes in NYC

NEW YORK (AP) — Hundreds of young women from across the U.S. are vying for a chance to become a Rockette in New York City.

With rain trickling down, the line for auditions stretched for more than a block outside of Radio City Music Hall on Tuesday.

Some of the women put on makeup and false eyelashes and others listened to music as they waited for hours for a chance to show off their talents.

Inside, they were led into a rehearsal studio to perform a dance routine before a panel of judges.

The Rockettes are known for their shows during the holiday season but they started adding warm-weather performances last year.

This year's "Rockettes New York Spectacular" runs from June 15 to Aug. 7.
