Sherri Dances with the Rockettes
Sherri, a stay-at-home mom from California, always wanted to dance with the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes. "I've dreamed of being a Rockette my entire life," she said. "I'm 32 years old, and every time I see them I think back to when I was 5."
After attending Radio City boot camp to learn the Rockettes' famous kicks, Sherri donned their signature Christmas costume and took the stage for a live performance on The Oprah Show in 2002.
