Just Dance! Knights Unveil First-Ever Dance Team

From milb.com

On Saturday, March 30 the Charlotte Knights held Knights Fest at Knights Stadium. The annual event was filled with fan-friendly activities including behind-the-scenes tours, inflatable games for kids, National Anthem auditions, and a media celebrity softball game on the field. One of the key moments of the day took place after the first inning of the softball game as the Knights revealed their first-ever “Dance Team”. Now, the Knights need your help in naming the team.

Fans interested in naming the team can email their suggestions to Media Relations Director Tommy Viola at tommyv@charlotteknights.com. Entries must be received by Tuesday, April 9 at 5:00 p.m. The winning name will be revealed on Opening Day during the Dance Team’s pre-game performance.

Beginning on Opening Day, April 11, the Knights Dance Team will perform at Knights Stadium and become a mainstay throughout the season. Below is the Dance Team’s schedule, which features 11 games this season.

2013 Knights Dance Team Schedule:

“The Dance Team will play an integral part of our on-field entertainment during our final season at Knights Stadium,” said Knights General Manager of Baseball Operations Scott Brown. “We expect them to bring an exciting new element to our games. Having them perform will be a great way for us to boost the energy at the stadium!”

The Charlotte Knights Dance Team’s official dance studio is Anne Marie’s Academy of Dance. During each game that the team performs, fans in attendance will have a chance to meet and greet the girls on the Knights Stadium concourse. Photos with the girls and autographs are encouraged!

Inland Empire 66ers audition dancers in San Bernardino

SAN BERNARDINO – The sounds of pop music blared from a boombox inside the Inland Empire 66ers clubhouse on Saturday morning.

Aspiring dancers lined up and took turns demonstrating their twirling and high-kicking abilities before getting that chance to show that one signature move that may be enough to earn one’s spot on the dance crew.

Their hopes were set on a spot on the 66ers’ minor league baseball team’s dance squad.

“I love the dance, it’s really energetic, and I feel like the Dance Team at the games to really pump up the crowd and get into it,” said nursing student Meredith Oliver, 22, of Moreno Valley during a break from the auditioning process.

Oliver said she is a nursing student at UC Riverside and danced with the team previously in 2010. She was among roughly 20 women competing for seven to 10 open spots on the Inland Empire 66ers’ dance squad.

Dancers earning a place on the team must make a year-long commitment to represent the 66ers at 70 home games and as many as 50 community events, said Byron Marquez, director of community relations for the 66ers.

The dance team also performs for the Ontario Reign minor league hockey team.

As the day’s auditions were about to start, Marquez’s tone was businesslike when he advised the dancers that “if you can’t make this commitment, I don’t want you on this team.”

“They presented themselves really well as to how serious they are,” said dancer Amanda Gojuangco, a 21-year-old UC Riverside student planning a career in public relations.

“I’m just trying my best. I’m so nervous right now,” she added.

Team dancer Maria B. led the aspiring dancers through the kinds of routines they would perform if they win a job, offering advice and encouragement along the way:

“I want to see big sexy walks.”

“Use that booty.”

“Whip that hair.”

The winning dancers can expect to put in a lot of time, but also have a lot of fun, said current team dancer Melanie Zecca, another UC Riverside student.

“I tell them, `Be ready for a life-changing experience,” Zecca said. “That’s why some of them stay on the team for years.”
