Dancers and Moralers Unite to Kick Off Color Wars

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last night, 711 dancers and their moralers filled the Multi-sport Complex to kick off 2014 THON festivities with some friendly competition.

Color Wars is an ongoing event during THON weekend to keep dancers entertained and busy for all 46 hours. Dancers are assigned colors based on their moralers’ committee colors. This year there are four Color Wars teams: blue, red, purple, and orange. Throughout THON weekend they will compete in various games and events, earning teams for their points which will then be added up to determine who wins bragging rights and immortality on the Color Wars trophy.

Last night, after the first dancer meeting, the dancers sat with their morale committees and anxiously awaited this year’s Color Wars theme. A promo video with the iconic Mockingjay pin announced the 2014 “THONger” Games — this year’s Color Wars theme. Several of the games will allow for Four Diamonds families and children to play along and rack up points for each color.

The competition kicked with “shape shifter” in which dancers had to morph into a formation of a shape showed on the screen. Next was the highly competitive “capture the clothespin” as dancers frantically scrambled to steal clothespins from each other while also protecting their own. In the end, reigning champs Blue came out on top, followed by Orange, Red, and Purple. There’s still plenty of time to catch up, and it will be fun to watch these dancers tributes duke it on THON weekend, FTK.

May the odds be ever in your favor.

We THON in 8!
