Phoenix, Ariz. – The Arizona Rattlers Sidewinders dance team will be hosting auditions for the 2020 squad on Saturday, January 4. The audition will be held at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.
“This season, we are looking for not only strong dancers, but all-around great representatives of the Rattlers organization,” said Sidewinders Assistant Director Shelby Regier. “The Sidewinders perform on game-days and also spend a lot of time involved in our community. Our team members are very well-rounded, talented individuals.”
Registration for the auditions begin at 1:30 p.m. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and must provide identification. There will be a $20 application fee for each applicant. This fee, however, is waived for dancers who have attended a prior prep class. The auditions will begin at 2:30 p.m. Applicants should wear a half top, shorts, and either tennis shoes or dance shoes. Bare feet are not permitted.
Prior to the auditions, the Sidewinders have been hosting prep classes, which are open to the public. There is still one remaining prep class prior to the audition, which takes place on Thursday, December 19 at Paula Carr Dance Academy, located at 3310 N. Hayden Rd., Scottsdale.
“Attending one of our prep classes is the best way to prepare for auditions,” stated Regier. “You will have the opportunity to learn a routine similar to what you will see on audition day, as well as have any of your questions answered by veteran team members and the directors.”
Participants interested in attending the final prep class can register at 7:45 p.m. and the class will run from 8:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. at Paula Carr Dance Academy. There is a $20 cash only fee. Any dancer under the age of 18 must have a parent signature to participate.
