Dallas Sidekicks Dancers announce virtual auditions

DALLAS, TX – July 29, 2020 — The Dallas Sidekicks Dancers, a professional dance team supporting the Dallas Sidekicks of the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL), have announced they will be doing virtual auditions for their 2020-2021 dance team. Due to COVID 19 and social distancing recommendations, the team felt virtual auditions would be the safest way to hold the auditions this year. The application deadline is August 9, 2020 and the fee is $25.

“We are excited to have our 2020-2021 Dallas Sidekicks Dancers auditions this year. Although this year will be virtual, I believe it will widen the amount of talent. We look forward to connecting with talented individuals sharing the passion of dance and performance!” said Janae Green, Director of Dallas Sidekicks Dancers.

The Dallas Sidekicks Dancers are looking for individuals that are team players, well-spoken and embody a true professional on and off the field. Applicants must complete an application and waiver form by August 9 at noon. They will then receive a choreography video with instructions on the video audition they will need to submit for the judges to review. The Dance Team will be announced August 24. 15-20 Dancers will be chosen.

“The Dallas Sidekicks Dancers are such an integral part of our team and community,” said Paul Donaghy, Director of Sales and Marketing for the Dallas Sidekicks. “They represent the Sidekicks with the upmost professionalism on and off the field. On the field, they are the best dance team in the MASL and off the field they are engrained in the DFW community representing the Dallas Sidekicks at events, working with local charities and mentoring the next generation of dancers. We were fortunate to have hired former Dallas Mavericks Dancer Janae Green as our Dance Director last year and she did a tremendous job with our great group of dancers. She has big aspirations for her team, and we are very excited to see her take the Dallas Sidekicks Dancers to an even higher level this year.”

To help applicants prepare for auditions, the Dallas Sidekicks Dancers are offering prep classes every Thursday for $15 at the Frisco Dance Studio located at 4350 West Main Street, #135, Frisco, Texas 75034. They are also providing mock auditions on a first come, first serve basis with a maximum of 20 girls for $25 each. The prep classes and mock auditions are both taught by professional NBA dancers and NFL cheerleaders as well as current Sidekick Dancers. To sign up applicants can email janae@dallassidekicks.org.
