Each two-hour workshop will be led by Thunder Girls Manager and Choreographer, Sabrina Ellison and include a group warm-up and a dance combination, similar to what participants will perform at auditions. In addition, the workshop session will address the try-out process, provide tips and answer questions.

Space is limited and pre-registration is encouraged. Participants can email sellison@thunder-nba.com to reserve their desired date and location in advance.
