Bismarck Demonettes' Chandelier Theme High Kick Costumes
The Bismarck Demonettes Dance Team competes locally and nationally for hip hop, pom, AND high kick, but it is with high kick that the team has strong roots. Established in 1962, the team was founded by a former Radio City Rockette, and they still know how to rock those those high kicks!
This past season, the team danced to Chandelier by Sia, which was the first piece of inspiration for their high kick routine. "We wanted to look classy and elegant, and of course sparkly, like a chandelier," explained Coach Jen Holwegner.
The team achieved their vision with an elegant blue velvet and lace unitard. A sweetheart neckline and applique necklace created the perfect feminine look to convey their chandelier theme!
