4 Things You Need to Take Advantage of Early Bird Discounts (And It Doesn't Include Your Team Roster!)

Starting early on your custom dance costume design can save you time, stress, and money, but one of the main constraints we hear is, "I don't have my team or money yet!" 

No worries, there are ways to get started even without your team assembled or your funds in place for the year. 

You can take advantage of early bird savings by getting started with your design and prototype before you have your team or your full funding. Then, when you have your team and funding secured, you can place your full order.

The Wizards & Cavaliers New Senior Dance Teams

Posted by Trista on Feb 5, 2019

Cleveland Cavaliers Senior dance team

The Washington Wizards and the Cleveland Cavaliers have a new addition to their entertainment lineup: senior dance teams!  The teams, aptly named Wizdom and Wine & Goldies,  are made up of dancers 50 years of age or older.  Many of the members have had past careers as dancers and auditioned against 50+ of their peers to make the team. 

The Wizards and the Cavaliers join the ranks of the Pelicans, and Golden State Warriors, Bucks, Heat, and Bulls  - all teams that have added senior dance teams in recent years. The new additions have occurred among a trend of more inclusive changes with NBA dance teams.  The Wizards, Raptors, and Spurs have also re-branded their dance teams and now feature co-ed members.  Who says only ladies can dance?! 

Check out some photos and videos from the Wizdom and the Wine & Goldies first performances this season!

2019 Iowa State Dance and Drill Championships 

Photos by Tim McConnell Photography. 

The Iowa State Dance and Drill Association Championships were held early last month in Des Moines, Iowa, and we recently got a few photos of the competition from photographer Tim McConnell.   

The Iowa State Competition is very different from many state competitions because there are colleges that compete, co-ed categories, production categories, light show categories, and more, in addition to the traditional dance team categories. So cool to see such a variety in one competition! 

Check out a few of the teams we were lucky to have outfitted for the tournament, below!
