One year my drill team officers did a novelty where they were dressed as newsies. Newsboy hats, suspenders, etc...all very "scrappy" looking, if you know what I mean. You could a song from the movie "Newsies" such as 'King of New York' or 'Once and For All'

Or if you don't like that, I was just at a competition where a team did a pirate-themed novelty to 'Hoist the Colours' from the "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" soundtrack. I didn't get to see their actual performance, but I saw them practice, and it seemed to be a lot of fun.

I hope I helped! Let me know what you decide to do!

I don't know of a song but what about plumbers or bellhops. Theres a song Is it scary by Michael Jackson maybe you could do somthing cool with that.

We've done Grease, Broadway, Hippies, Barbies, Spice Girls, the Flintstones, and one year was really fun we did "Preps, Punks, and Nerds" where each group had their own song but then at the end we all came together and danced to "We Are Family".

We've done good vs. evil, cops vs. robbers, a 90's TV show theme, and...holy cow, I feel like this was so long ago, haha. I can't remember the fourth. Those three were fun, though.

carwash seems cool, thats my dance this year and we have bright pink jump suits that are like neon with our names on them ! :)

i would recomend using the song "coffee in a carboard cup".
you could have half your girls dressed as waiters and with
platters with cardboard cups attached with velcro and have
the other half in skirts and ties acting a busisness. it
looks great and its such a fun song. good luck in the end !

We once did a show with "Play that Funky Music" by Wild Cherry in it, and it was set like a gang type thing at the opening beats, with all the girls coming in one side with attitude, all the guys in the other, and facing each other off, then one going forwards from each group, meeting, dancing, inviting the rest through, then everyone mixing and having a cool sort of dance off but having fun together too. With some people winning from the girls gang and some winning from the boys at the end (we finished in couples with one stood one floored)

If the gender difference is really uneven, so you can't use the girls v boys idea you could do a costume theme, so that could show the difference.

Other songs that might work could be black or white (MJ) (obvious one) Or something with funky beats like Amerie, Take control, but that would have to have a different take on the choreo - like marionettes.

This year we did a weather theme. At the first we danced with umbrellas and used the dancing in the rain song.. Then after that we used little wood rainbows and like ladder rainbows.. Then at the end we used the song Walkin On the Sunshine and used little round sunshines that we made. I loved that dance. I thought it was a great idea.
