There have been posts about choreography costumes so I thought I'd post a few pics from our recital this year.

These are Beginners (ages 6-12) doing a choreographed Broadsword. Pretty effective and cheap costumes... although not very traditional!

The kids really liked them and the steps were very traditional. Music was definately Scottish but kinda rock and roll so it worked. Thanks for the nice comments!

"Rock and Roll Highland" -- that's a new one! ;) But as I said above (^^) very nice! :) Oh well if they aren't traditional -- sometimes a little bit of difference makes it better! I've certainly learned that over the years of our year end dance recitals!

Exactly! I mean, how many gathered, tartan skirts can one collect before wanting a different kind of costume?!

I really like these ones! They're simple but very nice (espacially for younger dancers).

I agree, sometimes a little difference in tradition makes the event twice as cool. It's also something I've never seen before, usually choreography costumes (or at least the ones I've seen) have something to do with Highland,so this is definitely new and interesting!

We've done trains too! We always try to do a "story" recital so thinking up dances and costumes can be rather tricky!

Those are really nice costumes! We did a choreo a while back in hard shoes and we wore black body suits with full length arms, black pants with little stewart tartan flares and a vest with a tartan front and black vest. it was so much more comfortable than the skirts but I was really sick when we were performing so I lost weight and my pants kept on falling down! lol. When my mom brought the pants in to show at class and the flares hadn't been adjusted the dance moms started singing... "S-A-T-U-R..." lol. Pants are definately awesome!

Oooh... I really like the idea of a tartan flare with something matching up top! Hmm... brainstorming for next year...
