Is a kickline team the same as the drill team or the cheerleading team?
No it’s not. A kickline team has parts of drill and cheerleading but is its own specific type of style.
The Radio City Rockettes are, by far, the most famous kickline. The Rockettes have been a kickline group since their creation in the 1920s but they been performing in New York City since 1932.
The Rockettes are known for their long legs and those perfect high kicks.
A kickline team, “encompasses many styles of dance including jazz, hip-hop, pom and sequences of high-kicks.
The high-kick style of dance may be seen as similar to that of the Radio City Rockettes.”
These girls are dedicated and talented.
Sanford H. Calhoun High School has an award-winning varsity kickline team. They are known as the Calhoun Colts Varsity Kickline and they know how to entertain and stun crowds.
The 24 girls that made up the Colts Kickline team won second place at this competition for their amazing routine.
The girls strut out in four lines facing the judges with utmost confidence. Once their music starts they know what to do. These girls are hitting all their moves with precision and accuracy.
The kickline team is one with the music and their moves hit with every beat.
Hours and hours of practice have come to this.
Their coach must be really proud while watching this performance! The choreography is really fun and they’re executing all their movements with incredible gusto. An aspect of kickline is the use of pom with half of the girls using silver pom-poms and the other half with blue ones.
They are awesome to watch and before you know it, the kickline has slowly separated to create a bigger stage presence. The routine places four girls front and center who show that a kickline is more than high kicks.
The four girls in front throw in a few pirouettes.
The girls regroup into a diamond shape figure. What looked like more pom-pom moves became even better as the girls move their legs with the beat of the music and slowly start to move as one.
This dance routine is so impressive and the crowd is going wild for them!
The audience loved it, the judges were impressed, but online viewers showered all the praises for this high energy team. Check out some of the comments:
“That was INTENSE! Great job!”
“Their sharpness was great and the way they switched poms was so smooth.”
“You girls did a nice job…wicked!”
The girls know there is more to pom-poms than shaking them while standing up, so they show that you can shake them while laying down. The girls form a circle on the ground and put one pom between their legs and the other pom between their intertwined hands.
Those legs are going to kick the poms up!
