MIAMI –

With visions of NBA stardom rushing through their heads, dozens of eager dreamers laid it all on the line during Heat Dancers tryouts over the weekend.

In the end, only one enthusiastic hopeful truly stood out.

Keyth Wilson, Auditionee #71, put on a show-stopping performance that drew raves for those in attendance Sunday at the American Airlines Arena.

With more conservative dancers surrounding him, the gentlemen made use of the entire basketball court to showcase his moves.

Although men are not prohibited from auditioning for the award-winning squad, it’s been a while since one has actually been seen dancing on the hardcourt with the usually all-female group.

According to the Heat, he made it to the first round before making it to bootcamp.

Shout-out to the MVC Training Program

At least once a year I try to give a shout out to the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders Training Program. Every year the MVC extend invitations to around 20-30 dancers who didn’t make the team, but who show a lot of potential. Those ladies spend the next year prepping for the following year’s tryouts. They meet weekly, they dance, they learn technique, kicks, cheer, interview and media skills. They learn how to achieve their best look, how to perform with presence, and much more to bring that potential out. They also have opportunities to perform with the Vikings Cheerleaders during the season. A year is a HUGE commitment for both the MVC and the ladies involved, but the program has been going strong for almost 10 years. There’s nothing else like it in the NFL, and many an MVC has the Training Program to thank for eventually making the squad!

Oklahoma City Thunder
July 31, 2015

Oklahoma City, Friday, July 31, 2015 – The Oklahoma City Thunder selected its 2015-16 Thunder Girls dance team on Thursday night, the team announced. The final audition took place in front of a full house at the Showplace Theatre in Riverwind Casino.

The audition included both team veterans and newcomers. Of the women selected, seven are newcomers to the Thunder Girls.

“I am excited to enter a new season with this outstanding group,” said Paige Carter, dance team manager and choreographer for the Thunder. “Thunder Girls engage with our fans on and off the court, and sometimes even across the globe. These ladies will add excitement and energy to the Thunder experience at Chesapeake Energy Arena, as well as being excellent community ambassadors.”

A panel of judges – including Roy Williams, former NFL player and an All-American safety with the University of Oklahoma; former Miss Oklahoma Kelli Masters; Caroline Bennett, the 2015 Miss Black Oklahoma U.S. Ambassador; and Command Sgt. Maj. Tony F. Riggs of the Oklahoma Army National Guard – assisted Thunder staff in making the final selections.

The final audition process consisted of three rounds: a choreographed jazz/hip-hop routine, a question-and-answer session and a solo dance.

Following last Saturday’s open audition, 34 women were selected as finalists for Thursday’s. During the week, finalists took part in formal interviews and rehearsals to prepare for the finals.
