Project Runway's Nick Verreos and the Rockettes show how kicks are done during a trip to FIDM on Thursday.

Project Runway alum Nick Verreos kicked it with four members of the Radio City Hall Rockettes at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising on Thursday afternoon.

The event completed an afternoon that saw Verreos lead a workshop in Advanced Fashion Design with Costume Design Students, talking about the demands for costumes made for theater.

It also gave the Rockettes––dressed in their iconic candy cane outfits––some exposure on this leg of a Southern California tour promoting the Radio City Christmas Spectacular performances at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live that take place December 9 through 12.

Interesting note for those who want to try a Rockette kick line at any upcoming Holiday party: The Rockette's arms do not touch the back of the next dancer, preventing anyone from getting an unexpected push into the front row.
