The Leijorettes are a marching group in the Krewe of Chewbacchus honoring Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan. All women, men, and children are welcome to join. The Leijorettes, as their name suggests, are Princess Leia-themed majorettes, and all dancers (women, men, children) should be dressed as classic Leia (turtlenecked, long-sleeved, white outfit) from Star Wars, Episode 4: A New Hope.
Our twist on the costume will be a short dress–knee length or above–and white marching boots to complete the majorette look.
Handlers and non-dancers wishing to march should dress as Han, Luke, Lando, or another major male figure. A dance routine will be prepared, video recorded, and sent to members via YouTube. Our plan is to keep things simple for our members in regards to time and financial investment so that we can all simply show up at the parade and enjoy ourselves!
Organizers Sally Asher and Brooke Ethridge thank you in advance for your participation and cooperation.
