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.
