Team: University of Hawaii Rainbow Warrior Dancers
Director/Head Coach: Maryssa Carr
Location: Honolulu, Hawaii
Style: Gameday Cheer
A Bold, Sparkly Statement
The University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors had one requirement for their new 2016 gameday look: to make a bold, sparkly statement! The Carolina Zsa Zsa Dress - made up of white sequin encrusted zsa zsa fabric – was the perfect choice for that must-have eye catching sparkle!
The Rainbow Warrior Dancers are affiliated with the University of Hawaii’s marching band, and perform at a variety of events in addition to the football sidelines: pep rallies, basketball games, and out-of-school appearances, and even compete nationally in the spring. Trained in a variety of dance techniques, these ladies are fluent in hip hop, jazz, cheer, and some members are even training in breaking and Polynesian!
Check out the multi-talented team in action, at their first halftime performance of the season:
