CLEVELAND, OH - January 6, 2012 - The Cavaliers are looking for boys and girls who can bust-a-move and want to show off their fancy footwork in front of thousands of Cavs fans during the 2011-12 NBA season. The team is holding a workshop-audition for the Cavs Kids as well as the cutest thing to ever hit The Q, the CAV-A-LITTLES, on Saturday, January 21st at Quicken Loans Arena.

The youthful squads, made up of talented dancers and performers ages 5-13, have quickly become a crowd favorite. Last year, the Cavs Kids and CAV-A-LITTLES performed in seven regular season games! This season, they will perform throughout the Cleveland Cavaliers regular season during designated “Kid’s Nights.”

Registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. and the fun-filled workshop-audition will run from approximately 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. The day will begin with a performance from the Cavalier Girls and the Cavs hip-hop dance troupe, the Scream Team, followed by a group warm up. The children will participate in two learning sessions that incorporate diverse dance styles. Immediately afterward, participants will put on a performance for their parents/legal guardians to show off the skills they just learned.

There will also be an opportunity to showcase their freestyle dancing, and the coaches will have a question and answer session for the children and parents. Coaches are looking for energy, showmanship, personality, crowd appeal, ability to execute choreographed dance routines, and individual talent. Following the workshop-audition, the lucky children selected to perform as part of this season’s dance teams will be contacted.

Requirements for the workshop-audition include a $15 registration fee and a non-returnable photograph. A parent or legal guardian must be present to register their child. Children should look performance ready wearing comfortable athletic clothes with sneakers. They are strongly encouraged to bring water and a small snack for breaks throughout the day. All participants will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase discounted tickets to a select regular season game.

The Cavs Kids and CAV-A-LITTLES dance troupes teach children the responsibility of being part of a team, as well as provide a channel for them to display their talent and creativity. As a member of one of these two teams, children will not only learn choreographed dances, but also train to explore their performance skills and gain a strong sense of self-worth while learning the importance of teamwork. Most of all, the kids will be encouraged to have fun doing what they love - dancing!
