Heather found this video from the 2006 Showstopper Dance Competition that kind of sums up every single cliché associated with dance competitions that I could ever imagine, some of which have already been mentioned on this blog. Behold! The group fouetté turns, the heel stretch, the leg turn, the out-of-character hip grind, the super-young girls in triangle bikini tops and bare midriffs. WHAT A WILD, WILD PARTY!
