The Chosen Ones

2012-13 Rockets Power Dancer team revealed

HOUSTON - A new era for the Rockets Power Dancers is officially underway.

After ten days of intense, grueling training, three rounds of auditions and nerve-wracking performances, the results are in and the next generation of Rockets Power Dancers has been unveiled.

With more than a thousand people on hand to watch the event Wednesday night at the House of Blues in downtown Houston, 14 lovely and talented dancers were chosen, launching the team’s inaugural season under new coach and choreographer Natalie Alvarado.

This year’s edition of RPD promises to feature a heavy dose of hip-hop style and swag and all the dancers delivered the goods Wednesday, showing off an abundance of attitude, ability and sex appeal while wowing the audience to the sonic blast of Kanye West’s “Mercy.”

The event marked the fourth consecutive year that the Rockets have held the final auditions in public, and the spectators on hand were treated to a tremendous show, bearing witness to the festivities which included top-notch performances from all the finalists, plus Clutch the Rockets Bear, Launch Crew, Little Dippers and the Space City Seniors.

Be sure to keep an eye on the soon-to-be-ravamped Rockets Power Dancers' homepage in the weeks and months to come for more pictures, news and information on the '12-13 team.
