This weekend, the basketball world will flock to New Orleans, the site of the 2014 NBA All-Star Game.

But it won’t just be the league’s top players who are on display. For the first time since 2007, the NBA has assembled an all-pro squad of off-court performers – the All-Star Dance Team. 

Thirty girls were selected – one from each dance team in the league. Representing the Sixers is second-year Dream Team member Michelle.

“I’ve never been to New Orleans before. I’m excited to go and represent Philly!” she said.

In order to make the team, Michelle had to send a portfolio of photos and dance footage to the league’s offices in New York City. Several weeks later, she received word that she’d been selected to represent the Sixers.

“I fly down on Thursday the 12th, and once I get down there, we’re rehearsing from 3pm to 10pm,” she said. “They’ve already e-mailed me two routines to work on.”

The All-Star Dance Team will perform at multiple events throughout All-Star Weekend, so keep your eyes peeled for Michelle!
