We've seen spectacular cheerleading routines in the past. Some schools toss their cheerleaders high into the sky, others performing daring flips across the field and some use elaborate costumes to really draw the eye in - but these girls take things to the next level.
They're turning off the lights and turning up the music for a glow-in-the-dark cheer routine for the ages.
We're just glad the instructor thought to record their performance and share it online for the world to see.
Before jumping into the girls' showstopping routine, it's important to know how glow-in-the-dark chemicals first came to be. Even though it seems like a rather new technology, phosphorus, the main chemical behind luminous items, was isolated nearly 350 years ago.
"Phosphorus was first isolated in 1669 by German physician Hennig Brand. Brand was an alchemist who was attempting to change metals into gold when he isolated phosphorus. All photoluminescence glow-in-the-dark products contain phosphor. To make a glow in the dark toy, toymakers use a phosphor that is energized by normal light and that has a very long persistence - the length of time it glows."
All of that science mumbo jumbo means that phosphorus reacts to light (or lack thereof) and produces a bright color - just like you see on the girls' costumes.
The girls used their glow-in-the-dark outfits to display well-practiced movements and stunning choreography. It takes talent to perform a cheer routine in the light - just imagine the skills it takes to do so in the dark! They had to move around blindly, all while utilizing the glow-in-the-dark elements on their clothes to give their peers an eye-catching show.
Their peers were completely silent throughout the performance. They'd never seen anything like it! But the moment the girls bowed and jogged off the stage, everyone erupted into applause.
The only word to describe this awesome glow-in-the-dark routine is "Wow!"
