Accessorise and make your outfit to look like a costume – Must match the Backstreet colours – eg. striped socks, tutus, hats, gloves, etc. Our colours are: BLACK, WHITE, SILVER, AND UNIQUE BACKSTREET BLUE.

Wear white / silver / black shoes of any brand or style. Ensure they are comfortable to dance/walk in.

Wear some sort of diamond-like accessories – eg. diamonte necklace/earrings: Safe to dance in.


KEEP IN MIND:  The Parade Committee have a standard that we must dress up our uniforms A LOT so we look like we are in a Festival. Therefore, they expect creativity and uniqueness in what we wear.


IMPORTANT: If a student is not dressed appropriately, i.e. according to the theme or complying with Backstreet dancewear and colours, the student will NOT be permitted to participate in the Parade.  We must be fair to those who did put the effort in and dress up according to what we have laid out above. Thankyou. We look forward to sharing our positive energy in the community.
