    I know we don't all like them but if you're a fan of themes, what are the best ones you've seen executed?


    Mine:

    1. France (French national anthem and "Beauty and the Beast" music)
    2. Peter Pan ("Forever Young"!)
    3. Video games (I think from a Cali team)
    4. Supermodels (way back when the rules were less strict, the team came out with what looked like poms which they then unraveled mid-routine to reveal they were actually feather boas)
    5. Magic
    6. Fire
    7. Numbers
    8. Women ("Ladies Night," "She's Got the Look," and "American Woman")
    9. West (Tupac's "California," "Wild Wild West," and "Appalachian Spring," or the A1 steak sauce song)
    10. WCSS circus theme

    Yours?

    Short list.

    *WCSS Gaga - and I don't even particularly like her music.

    *Midnight has been pretty committed to the whole fairytale/Cinderella/time thing so I'm going call it a theme.

    *WCSS Dancing With The Stars.

    *Cali Senior Coed 3 that had the Hunger Games theme.

    none. I have yet to see a theme or use of props that does not take away from the actual skills and not look like a mess.
    WCSS Copacabana was the only one I thought wasn't completely distracting.

    Copacabana was THE best. Lola’s yellow feathers made my life.

    2007-2009 world cup era was some of their best themes to date, although i really loved their jersey girl routine.

    Did top gun ever have any themes back in they day, till recently?

    Stars have always had the best theming for routines. 07-09 was a goldmine for routines for them. 2015's Jersey Girls is always ridiculously up there for me. I'd also say not so much a theme but the Fallen Jags routine from 005 in 2013 when Omar passed is another that has always held resonance too.

    Uhhhhhhhh is Pitbull a theme? Because TG has used Pitbull. A lot.



    Some other not well known but fun themes were ACE's 2004 Country theme, East Elite's 2009 J5 "Church/Faith/Prayer/Religion" theme, East Elite's 2009 Senior 4(?) "Time" theme, and one year, maybe 2008(?), WC Lady Gems had a "Money" theme and that mix is rad as heck.

    Also didn’t someone have a wedding theme in like 2005? I swear it was either Georgia or Spirit of Texas.

    They're near us, CP has been there for tumbling clinics a couple of times. I think all their 3 (maybe) teams are going to D2 Summit.
