Sally Hong was a Radio City Rockette for six seasons. She performed on Broadway in Flower Drum Song and in the National Tours of The King and I, Flower Drum Song (Dance Captain), and 42nd St. She has taught in studios and schools nationwide — currently at Sacred Heart University — and was one of the first to teach The Rockette Experience at Radio City. She served as Tap Choreographer for Trumbull High School, contributing to their production winning the Halo Awards for Best Supporting Actor, Best Actress, two Dance Molinari Scholarships, and Best Classical Musical. While in the capacity as Dance Director for Notre Dame Catholic High School, Sally secured multiple grants fulfilling her dream to introduce groups of students to Broadway shows and take workshops from cast members. Sally is a co-founder of Rockettes of Color Alumnae and is passionate about diversifying the line for multiple colors to be represented. One of the projects that came from her collaboration with Radio City is the article on their website featuring her for AAPI Heritage Month:
