High school dance and drill teams don’t always try their hand at high kick routines because of how difficult they are to beautifully execute. Legs must be straight, arms must be locked at hook-up, hands stiff, and toes pointed.
Texas teams lay claim to the high kick format as being their specialty, and many other states’ high school teams try to replicate their success. In fact, most high schools in Texas have rather large precision dance and drill teams with upwards of 75 members!
High school football is huge in Texas and the teams usually perform at the halftime of these rousing games, as well as at other events.
