When a group of people practice hard for hours, days or months to perform a synchronized dance, you can expeced an oustanding result. For example, this group of young girls from the Dodge City High School, who were 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 mid-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% are 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!”

Naturally, 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. You see, making the finals was a big deal for the school, so their team had gone to great lengths to ensure their dance lived up to the occasion.

Which is 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 light show and all.

These girls were so passioned and dedicated to the dance that everyone couldn’t be but impressed by.
