WCU students ring in the holidays Rockettes style

Written by 

Karyn Tomczak, director of Western Carolina University’s dance program and a former Radio City Music Hall Rockette, helps WCU dance students prepare for a Rockettes-inspired holiday show to be performed in the Asheville Holiday Parade on Saturday, Nov. 20. “As a Rockette, I danced in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which was hard work, but dancing so close with so many women at once really promoted ‘Rockette pride,’” said Tomczak. “I wanted to give our students a similar experience with the Asheville Holiday Parade, and I hope they feel ‘WCU pride’ for the School of Stage and Screen.” The group, which is scheduled to appear 96th in the parade – not far from Santa – will dance to a one-minute version of “Happy Holidays” from the musical “White Christmas.” The dancers also are expected to make a surprise appearance at one of WCU’s holiday shows. The WCU calendar of events is available online at For more information, contact 828.227.3672 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
