The West Fargo Dance Team designed two outstanding costumes for the 2014-2015 season. Competing in both high kick and jazz, the West Fargo Dance Team costumes were a definite crowd (and judge!) pleaser.

Jazz

Their song for jazz was “World on Fire” by Les Friction, about humans saving Earth from destruction. “We needed a uniform that gave the image of futuristic armor,” said Varsity Assistant Coach Gretchen Stafslien. To create the fierce ultramodern look, multiple fabric textures in tones of charcoal grey were used: tricot, velvet, and mesh. West Fargo got creative and added a few more finishing touches themselves: a mesh hood to add drama, and rhinestones stripes on the bodice to add a little sparkle.

The routine was choreographed by Patrice Barakat Corral, and won 1st place at the ND State Dance Competition and Judge’s Choice at DX in Minneapolis, MN. Congrats!

High Kick

For 2014-2015 high kick, West Fargo used the song “I Will Survive” by J2. The routine was choreographed by Dan Sapp.  The costume design was inpired by a photo of a Sophia Lucia, and the look and feel was to be ‘animalistic’.

Like their jazz costume, this kick unitard used a variety of fabric textures to emphasize their theme. Fog mesh (mesh with a metallic sheen) was used on one leg, and exotic lace (lace with a unique sequin pattern) was used on the other to create a distinctive look from a distance. Coach Stafslien said “we wanted to have the legs of the costume be two different fabrics to creative a visual while kicking. We used exotic lace on part of our kick costume last year, and we really liked the way it looked on stage.”

The routine won 1st place at the ND State Competition, 3rd place at UDA Nationals in Orlando, FL, and awarded Best Costume at DX in Minneapolis.
