Accordingly, how much does a Rockette make?
Typically, each Rockette receives a paycheck of between $1,400 and $1,500 each week. Because these famous dancers only perform seasonally, this only amounts to between $36,400 to $39,000 per year. The Rockettes do receive their benefits year-round, though.
Furthermore, how old do you have to be to become a Rockette? You must be at least 18 years of age. Technically, there's no maximum age limit, but Rockettes typically aim to hit the goal of at least 10 years on the stage before hanging up their tap shoes.
Also, what is the average height of a Rockette?
Rockettes have to be between 5' 6" and 5' 10 1/2" tall (not counting those ultra-high heels). In kick lines, they stand with the tallest women in the middle, moving down to the shortest on the ends, which creates the illusion that they're doing everything in unison.
Do Rockettes have to sing?
Rockettes tend to get asked back year after year, which makes it one of the steadiest gigs in the business -- and one of the few gigs for jazz and tap-dancers who don't also sing.
