Dancers faced a panel of 16 judges during the preliminary rounds of auditions, held at the downtown YMCA on Saturday, June 21, 2104. The girls performed a freestyle routine in groups of eight before the field was narrowed. Additional choreography was taught to the hopefuls, ending the day with a group of finalists chosen.

The finalists attend additional boot camp sessions before the final auditions held on Tuesday, July 1, when the 2014-2015 squad of roughly 14 dancers will be named.

The Rockets Power Dancers perform in Toyota Center at the Houston Rockets home games, as well as performing as ambassadors for the team at Houston community events.
