StarDance 2015: A Singularly Spectacular Event

On October 17th, 2015 ten dance pairs hit the dance floor in the Czech Republic to kick off the 7th annual StarDance competition, the licensed equivalent of Britain‘s Strictly Come Dancing. This uniquely elegant ballroom dance competition was followed by almost 2 million viewers (over 50% of the country’s adult audience) and PRECIOSA was once again proud to sponsor the much awaited event.

Each week during the 10-week competition, Heller Dance & Fashion created stunning new costumes for the dancing pairs – comprised of a celebrity and their professional dance partner – and adorned them with thousands of PRECIOSA Crystal Components.  Over ¾ of a million, in fact!  Standard dresses took, on average, 48 man-hours to make and used over 8,500 sparkling crystal components. Latin costumes took slightly less – approximately 35 hours per dress – and used around 7,200 brilliant stones each.  The resulting designs were, not surprisingly, always a hit with the dancers and audience alike and added and air of glitz and glamour to the Saturday evening performances.
