Memphis Grizzlies to Host First Round of 2014-15 Grizz Girls Auditions July 12

The Memphis Grizzlies will hold First Round Auditions for the 2014-15 Grizz Girls dance team on Saturday, July 12 inside the Mallory Gymnasium at Rhodes College (2000 N. Parkway Memphis, 38112). Registration begins at 9 a.m. The Grizz Girls will perform at FedExForum for all Memphis Grizzlies games during the 2014-15 season and represent the team at events throughout the greater-Memphis area, as well as internationally.

Before the July 12 First Round Auditions, two clinics will be offered to give hopeful candidates the opportunity to learn the routine that will be used at the audition from Grizz Girls choreographer Tamara Moore. Clinic 1 will be on Wednesday, July 2 at 6:30 p.m. and Clinic 2 will be held on Wednesday, July 9 at 6:30 p.m. The cost is $25 per clinic, or $40 for both.

Going on now and continuing through auditions, Moore will also host Grizz Girls Girl Play classes to teach participants basic dance and performance techniques alongside current Grizz Girls. Classes are held weekly on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. and Thursdays at 6 p.m. at Madison Dance Studios (1555 Madison Avenue, Memphis 38104). The cost is $10 per class or $6 for those with a valid college/university ID. Dancers of all skill levels are invited to take part in the classes, pre-audition clinics and audition. To register for the pre-audition clinics and classes go to Grizzlies.com.

While participation in the pre-audition clinics and classes is encouraged, all qualified dancers are invited to participate in the July 12 First Round Auditions. Once these auditions are completed, the group of finalists will compete for a spot on the 2014-15 Grizz Girls team at the Final Auditions on Tuesday, July 15 at the Orpheum Theater. The Final Audition will begin at 7 p.m. and will be free and open to the public.
