“We’re changing the format and taking the dance team to a new level this season. We are confident our all-new dance team will play a major role in establishing the Cavaliers game night experience as one of the most dynamic and exciting in the entire NBA.”, said Cavaliers president Len Komoroski. All candidates must be 18 years of age by November 1, 2003 and a high school graduate or equivalent to audition for the team.

Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. in the lobby next to the Practice Court on level four at Gund Arena. The audition will begin promptly at 11:30 a.m. on the Practice Court. Contestants may enter the building through the East Bridge Walkway. The walkway can be accessed by taking the elevators in the Gateway East Parking Garage to Level 3.

Dancers are required to mail in a non-returnable resume and photo to the following address prior to the audition:

The preliminary auditions held on July 26 are closed to the public and guests and family will not be permitted to enter the facility. Dancers that are selected to return will be part of a final audition on July 27 to be held on the main floor at Gund Arena.

All candidates must wear a two-piece aerobic/workout outfit (jog bra and bike shorts) or a two-piece leotard and appropriate dance shoes. Dancers are asked to come dressed and prepared for both auditions upon arrival.

The all-new Cavaliers Dance Team will participate in a variety of year-round team related events outside of Gund Arena and will expand their involvement to corporate, community and charity-based activities throughout northeast Ohio.
