This month we are spotlighting one of our very favourite Debutante Ball themes, CHICAGO! We absolutely love everything about this story; the era, the fashion, the music and most of all – the sass.
Chicago is set in 1924 at a time when the city was fascinated with criminals, particularly women that killed their husbands or lovers. The style of the time reflected the intrigue, darkness and sexiness that is associated with the lead characters, Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart, both Vaudevilles and murderers.
While in prison Velma Kelly is still very much a celebrity whose exploits were regularly reported in the Chicago Tribune, until that is, Roxie Hart bursts onto the cabaret scene and steals all the attention from Velma! Roxie is also convicted of murdering her lover and ends up in prison with Velma where a battle for the limelight ensues eventually ending in an unlikely double-act which creates the success they have both craved.
All the music for the night is from the musical, your deb presentation dances will be rehearsed to this music in your dance lessons. Then on the night, in the second presentation, you will wear accessories that match the theme bringing it even more to life and tying everything together perfectly.If Chicago sounds like a theme you and your group would enjoy then speak to us about choosing this fantastic option for your Debutante Ball!
