stadium , quickly became one of the worst sports disasters of the century when disgruntled rock fans wrecked the stadium while racing to get the disco records burned and blown up.
Disco abruptly disappeared from public view and resurfaced in the 1980s in Chicago in the form of house
music, which is still fairly popular today.

Disco today uses fast club/dance music and requires agility, flexibility, grace, coordination, and good endurance. Competitions are usually held on Sunday's except some last all weekend. Dancers train extensivley during the week. They wear highly decorated costumes, often called cozzies, that are designed to stand out and be noticed by the judges during competition. Disco moves can include kicks, spins, leaps, and balances
