All-girl dance team take the floor, only for crowd to lose it when lights abruptly go out


There is something about well-done group dances which is positively mesmerizing.

When a number of people can work together perfectly, all playing their own small part in a well-oiled machine, it makes for brilliant viewing. For those looking for an example of what I’m talking about need only look so far as the Dodge City High School, who was chosen to host the 76th annual Tournament of Champions.

The school’s basketball team made it to the finals of the competition, but it was their drill team that stole the headlines with their half-time performance.

The first half was spectacular before the lights suddenly went out in the middle of the song.

Sue Kidd, a fan of the drill team, wrote on the school’s Facebook page: “A bit of background for Dodge City HS, located on the western plains of KS. Total enrollment is 2000 students, 81% is the minority and of that 76% Hispanic, and with low unemployment in the community.

“The school is focused on academic success AND respect for all students through a strong focus on character development. This is an example of that success. Congratulations!”

Of course, there was an abundance of shows performed in-between games and at half-time, but none of them came close to Dodge City’s drill team. Making the final was a big problem for the school, and their team had gone to great lengths to ensure their dance lived up to the occasion.

That’s why hearts dropped in the audience when the lights suddenly went out.

… But it was a ruse; a stunt executed with expert choreography.

Wearing lit up crowns, and capes that were actually wings, the dancers adjusted when the beat switched from a soft ballad to a thrilling remix, with the light show and all.

The dedication to the dance is something that no one who watches the video will fail to be impressed by.
