After Hairspray, the XS Juniors were looking for a new and exciting challenge and so the coaches decided to give them the routine with which XS Latin adult team had won its third British National title in 2008 – Night Fever.
The routine, featuring songs like You Should Be Dancing, Staying Alive and How Deep Is Your Love, had proved very popular with the adult team and its supporters and so the juniors decided to rise to the challenge! Wearing blue dresses with black fringing, the team debuted the routine at the 2011 British Junior Championships.

The inspiration for this, XS Latin’s 8th themed routine, was the London stage production of Saturday Night Fever, which played at the London Palladium and was choreographed by Arlene Philips. One of the team members, along with her sister, displayed a worrying devotion to the production, having seen it on stage several times, and, after some successful campaigning, persuaded the coaches and the team to buy into this theme.
