Seattle Impact FC announces co-captains for dance team

Kent Reporter
Aug 22, 2014

Lauren Baumann and Elizabeth Buslon have been named co-captains of the Seattle Impact FC’s dance team, Ladies with Impact.

Both bring plenty of dancing and choreography experience to the Impact, the newest member of the 23-team Major Arena Soccer League.

The Impact kick off their inaugural pro indoor season at home at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 8 against the San Diego Sockers. The Impact will play all 10 home games at the ShoWare Center.

“We both have the experience, drive and dedication to build a professional team for the Impact,” Baumann said. “Elizabeth will be a great team leader, and I look forward to working with her.”

Raised in Seattle, Baumann is a graduate of Gonzaga University, where she obtained her degree in business administration and marketing. She spent several seasons as a dancer for the Arena Football League’s Spokane Shock Dance Team and the National Lacrosse League’s Washington Stealth Bombshells Dance Team.

Baumann also was the dance team coach for Seattle University and Gonzaga.

Buslon grew up in Kent, where she performed for her high school dance team. She was an instructor for the Thunderbird Dance Camp in Portland, Ore., dancer and choreographer for the Bombshells and a finalist for the NBA Portland Trail Blazers Dancers.

Buslon attends Bellevue College, where she is studying to become a registered nurse.

“Both being coaches of grade school dance teams, we have always collaborated with each other about techniques of coaching and how to help girls reach their full potential in the dance community,” Buslon said. “Working alongside of Lauren will be a great opportunity to learn from each other as well as grow as dancers ourselves.”

Open player tryouts and dance team auditions are Sept. 6-7, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, at the ShoWare Center. Preregistration is required.

Baumann and Buslon will be looking for dancers with strong showmanship, personality, and positive energy.

“Dancers should be in top physical condition and take pride in their appearance,” Baumann said.

The 2014 Ladies of Ontario Fury Dance Team Auditions

This past Saturday, the Ontario Fury of the MASL held their auditions for their 2014 dance team, the Ladies of Ontario Fury.  Last year was their inaugural season and I can testify that their dance team made an audacious debut.  The squad is under the direction of Lynae de Leon, a former Clippers Spirit dancer, and she has a gift for developing local dance talent and training them for higher level professional sports dance teams.  This past year alone, several of her former dancers have gone on to making the Charger Girls and the Clippers Spirit and making the finals for the 49ers Gold Rush, the Golden State Warrior Girls and Seattle Sea Gals.

I was excited to see what would come of these auditions and to anticipate the great things to come with this new squad.  A new season brings a new beginning and a renewal.  Gone were a few veterans, so that there were some openings available for a few talented candidates.  But the competition would be fierce.

The Sun Also Rises: The 2014 Phoenix Suns Dancers Auditions

This past Saturday, the Phoenix Suns held their preliminary auditions for their dance team at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Over a hundred girls tried out for roughly 18 positions.  With 13 veterans trying out again, in reality the 100 hopefuls were essentially auditioning for five open slots, give or take an unexpected vacancy or two.

It was clear that the returning veterans were clearly a cut above the majority of those trying out.  A season’s worth of rehearsing and performing was evident in their technique, showmanship and ability to learn the audition routine quickly.  From this person’s perspective, there was a clear difference between the veterans and the other girls at this audition.

That is not to say that there weren’t any qualified candidates in attendance.  In fact, I saw many girls who had previously tried out for the Suns Dancers or the Arizona Cardinals Cheerleaders and many of them were quite talented and good looking.  But with only a handful of openings in any given year, many talented dancers go wanting.

But I am getting ahead of myself…
