Raise 'em high, ladies: the latest inductees into (onto?) the St. Louis Walk of Fame are....the Rockettes. The stylish steppers began life in 1925 as the "Missouri Rockets," a 16-member dance line dreamt up by Russell Markert and inspired by the Ziegfeld Follies gals. They performed to entertain the crowds before feature films at the Missouri Theater on Grand Ave. — so much better than the crappy commercials we're subjected to these days. Seven years later, they kicked and pivoted their way into a permanent gig at Radio City Music Hall.
You can join the fun at the induction ceremony on Wednesday, Aug. 1, at 11 a.m. at 6309 Delmar (near Riddle's Penultimate). Keep on kickin'.
