Dance Alley All Stars Shine in their Custom High Kick Uniforms at UDA Nationals!
The Senior Kick team from Dance Alley Studio knew they needed a very intense and mature costume to tell the story of their Moulin Rouge themed performance at UDA Nationals! The goal was to highlight their clean lines while incorporating the intensity of the music.
The team created a cabaret style high kick unitard, accented with a bold red inside stripe on the leggings. "The velvet lines on the legs looked beautiful as the girls executed their kicks and the gold sequins of the arms gave us the right amount of sparkle to shine on the Nationals/World stage," said Coach Bettina Rogers
Ultimately, they left the competition as the World Champions for World Performance Senior Kick and Senior Poms!
Congratulations ladies! Check out more Q&A with Coach Bettina and a video below!
