Rockettes Spring Forward With New Musical

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- "Dancing with the Stars" meets the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall this spring.

The iconic Rockettes are combining their moves with dancer and choreographer Derek Hough to create a whirlwind musical celebrating the city that never sleeps.

Some of the high-kicking, high-energy Rockettes visited the CBS2 studios to promote the New York Spring Spectacular, which runs from March 12 through May 3 at Radio City Music Hall.

"It's so different for us," one of the dancers, Jessica, told CBS2's Diane Macedo. "There's no more red and green sparkles. Santa is nowhere to be found. But we're so excited because this is a contemporary, fresh, new thing for the Rockettes. We are premering wonderful choreography, 3-D effects, and we have, of course, two great stars that are leading the way for us."

The show stars Hough ("Dancing with the Stars") and Laura Benanti ("Gypsy," "The Sound of Music Live").
