Orono's Spunky Beetlejuice Theme Custom Dance Costumes
From a stand out, eye-catching theme dance costume to a gorgeous, memorable jazz dress, Orono high school dance team made a statement this year on the dance floor. The girls took it all the way to the Minnesota State Dance Team Tournament for both Kick and Jazz this past season!
Orono went full out for their high kick performance with a cult classic theme: Beetlejuice!
"I've wanted to do Beetlejuice for quite a few years and The Line Up came up with the perfect uniform for our vision," explained Coach Sharon Forde. "This routine was just cheesy fun and we had a blast creating it and performing it all season!"
The team put their own spin on the iconic black and white stripe by adding a pop of red sparkle and a tulle bustle to their custom dance costumes.
Now that the season is all wrapped up, we were able to catch up with Sharon and hear more - check out more Q&A and video below!
