Every year we start designing our latest costume collection by doing a lot of research. We look at what teams are wearing at competition, what our customers are designing, and the fashion trends on the runway. Despite the diversity, there's always a few clear trends that emerge! Here's a look at 3 of our favorite dance costume trends for 2019 :
Team: Hazen Drill Team
Coach: Lindsay Starr
Location: Renton, WA
Style: High School Dance Team - Military
You probably have a stretching routine that you’ve been doing for months or even years. Usually the routine starts standing, folding over your legs for a hamstring stretch, spending some time in a runners lunge, and of course a straddle stretch that slides right into the splits.
From studios to dance teams, stretching usually looks the same, but it’s important to follow healthy stretching guidelines to prevent injury and decreasing your strength.
So, how should a dancer stretch correctly? By avoiding these three things, below!
The 2018 Washington State Dance/Drill Championship was held on March 23-24 and we are LOVING all the photos from the event! So many creative dance costume designs came to life on the floor: from Skyline Dance Team's Bruno Mars inspired pom uniform, to Hazen Drill Team's sleek Snake costume for military, these teams know how to design gorgeous and innovative costumes!

North Dakota high school dance teams brought their season to an exciting culmination at the 2018 NDADD State Dance Competition last month, competing in Pom, Jazz, Hip Hop, and High Kick!
We love how certain dance communities have created their own costume trends, and North Dakota is no exception! If it's a unitard, or velvet, we know it's probably a North Dakota team! These ladies know how to rock these unique looks.

Congrats on another amazing season, ladies!
