The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking for talented, hardworking, energetic and outgoing women to be members of the 2013-2014 Cavalier Girls dance team. On Saturday, July 27th at 10:00 a.m. at Quicken Loans Arena, auditions will be held for next season’s squad. A group of women who uphold a high standard of professionalism on and off the basketball court, the Cavalier Girls are ambassadors for the Cleveland Cavaliers organization, committed to bringing top-notch performances to the team’s award-winning game presentation night after night, in addition to being dedicated representatives for community outreach initiatives.
