Atlanta Hawks To Host Open Call For Talent To Join ATL Dancers at Auditions on June 2

ATLANTA – The Atlanta Hawks will host an open call audition for the ATL Hawks Dancers at State Farm Arena this Sunday, June 2. The nationally recognized dance squad is looking for new members in advance of the the 2019-20 season. Along with performing at the Hawks 41 home games, the dancers are also highly visible community ambassadors, making appearances at a wide variety of events including festivals, corporate functions and schools.

“Serving as an ATL Hawks Dancer is an exciting opportunity both personally and professionally,” said Donni Frazier, Hawks’ director of fan experience. “While the team is a huge part of the game experience, they are very closely connected with the Atlanta community, and also receive exposure on a national and international scale.”

During the extensive audition process, the judges will be looking for performers with exceptional technical dance skills, exude confidence and enjoy being on a fun, impactful team. Aspiring dancers will have the opportunity to train with some of the top dance professionals in the country and participate in a variety of fitness boot camps, practices and a mixer for finalists to meet the Hawks’ fan base leading up to their final audition.

Over the last season, the ATL Hawks Dancers have performed with GRAMMY® Award-winning singer Ciara during the first-ever Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest at State Farm Arena and created a custom dance challenge around Billboard HOT 100 Chart’s number 1 song “Old Town Road” by Atlanta rapper Lil Nas X.

The squad is a part of Hawks Entertainment which also includes other fan favorites such as Harry the Hawk, Silver Classix Crew, ATL Boom, A-Town Breakers, The A-Team and ATL Stunt Team.

On-site registration begins Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and auditions will begin at 10 a.m. Registration to audition is $45 via cash or money order. *For more information about the ATL Hawks Dancers and how to register for open call auditions, visit
