MANHATTAN - A group of students from Bedford-Stuyvesant got the opportunity of a lifetime today when they got to dance at Radio City Music Hall with the Rockettes.

The group of students from the nonprofit SCO Family of Services was chosen to visit Radio City Music Hall as part of Madison Square Garden's "Garden of Dreams" program. As part of the visit, they got a tour of Radio City and private dance lessons from two of the Rockettes. Yesterday, they got to skate with the New York Rangers at their practice facility in Westchester.

For the past five years, the program has given hundreds of underprivileged children once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

The Dolan family owns a controlling interest in MSG and Cablevision.  Cablevision is the parent company of News 12.
