“The Christmas Spectacular” has been seen by more than 69 million people since it debuted in 1933. The world-famous show features a precision synchronized dance group known for their kick lines and festive attire.

The dance group used their various social media platforms to promote their highly-anticipated return, writing on Instagram, "Can’t wait to see you there." The group also shared a video of the women training and practicing their dance moves in preparation for the upcoming season.

Last year's absence due to the pandemic marked the first time in 87 years the production was canceled. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular starring the world famous dance group announced the show's cancelation in August 2020.

"We are disappointed for everyone involved with the show, as well as for the many fans who make the Christmas Spectacular a cherished part of their holiday tradition," MSG Entertainment, which owns Radio City Music Hall, said in a statement. "We look forward to welcoming audiences back for the 2021 production, which is on sale now."

Tickets for the 2021 show start at $49 and are now on sale. They can be purchased at rockettes.com/christmas.
