HOUSTON - With equal parts skill, swag and sexiness, a new era of RPD is underway.

After more than a week’s worth 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 Monday night at the House of Blues in downtown Houston, 14 lovely and talented dancers were chosen, launching the team’s second season under coach and choreographer Natalie Alvarado.

This year’s edition of RPD promises to feature an even heavier dose of hip-hop style and attitude, and all the dancers delivered the goods Monday, showing off an abundance of attitude, ability and sex appeal while wowing the audience during performances set to the steady grooves and sonic blast of Bruno Mars and Birdy Nam Nam.

The event marked the fifth 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 each of the 19 finalists.

Be sure to keep an eye on the soon-to-be-revamped Rockets Power Dancers' homepage in the weeks and months to come for more pictures, news and information on the 2013-14 team.
