TAMPA, Fla. - Two Rockettes dancers joined the Tampa Bay Rowdies at Skyway Park for kicking lessons.
The Rockettes showed the players the technique used for their famous strut kicks. The players then showed the Rockettes how to properly kick a soccer ball.
Rowdies coach Rickey Hill says he wanted the players to learn how to be light on their feet while focusing on balance and grace.
The two Rockettes, Deana Brickley and Jeanne Cargill, are both Florida natives
They teamed up with Rowdies players to celebrate the return of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular at the Straz Center. The production features the Rockettes. The show will run from December 12 through December 29.
