GRAPEVINE-- Every team needs a little sideline support to score a 'W' and the WNBA's Dallas Wings are no exception. Saturday morning, Flight Crew hopefuls put their best out on the dance floor, in hopes of snagging a spot on the dance squad.
"I followed the Shocks since they were in Tulsa and when I found out they were coming to Dallas and it would be a dance team -- I had to try out," explained one hopeful.
This year's team will be under the direction of Sydne Miller, who's reason for a co-ed dance squad is to bring a different flavor to the Dallas Wings and WNBA entertainment.
"There is a another co-ed team in Dallas , the Dallas Rhythm and Blues, with the Dallas Cowboys and that's who we are modeling ourselves after," Miller explained. "We're getting to redefine what performance is in the WNBA."
An experienced panel of judges were there to hand pick the team. If you were looking to make the cut, you had to be 18 years or older, have hip-hop dance experience, and enthusiasm for performing.
"Definitely looking for someone who has energy, a great smile, and can be out in the community communicating with people," explained Lauren Gibler, a judge at this year's auditions.
The squad is scheduled to perform at every home game during halftime. Here's hoping the Flight Crew can take the Dallas Wings to new heights!
