Since the beginning of the National Dance Team Championship, the Varsity High Kick category has held the perfect combination of tradition and teamwork.
With the precision of high kicks and the synchronization between athletes, it has been transformed with each team adding their own unique style to the traditional kicks.
There is a strong emphasis on teamwork in the High Kick category, due to the link of athletes. The stakes become higher when each athlete is connected to one another rather than dancing as individuals. The pace of this division is swift since each routine must meet the minimum requirement of 50 kicks by at least half of the team.
Instead of the customary fast-paced tempo, Maine South High School stretches their kicks to a slower tempo, which increases the difficulty.
When the kicks are not executed in a quick and repetitive fashion, this creates more room for error which Maine South eliminates with strong technique and an unbreakable bond.
