Taking its inspiration from the Kander and Ebb musical, XS Latin B Team’s first routine was Cabaret. Featuring standards such as Money, Money, Maybe This Time, Mein Herr and the classic title track, the routine aimed to evoke a feel of the Broadway musical and the Oscar winning film starring Liza Minnelli.
The women were costumed in black and silver fringed dresses in the 1930s style, with purple gloves, penny-dropper decorations and headbands to create a period feel. Over the course of the routine, as the team developed in experience, the routine increased in speed and more tricks were added. The routine debuted at the 2011 British National Championships and the team performed it for the final time at the 2012 Danube Cup in Austria.
