The 14ers Dance Team will perform dance and cheer routines during all Colorado 14ers home games at the Broomfield Event Center and will participate in various community events throughout the season. Candidates were evaluated on a variety of attributes including physical fitness, dance ability, personality, energy and poise.

"We also have a great choreography intern in Brieanna Mercer, who is already impressing us with her routines. Fans will have a lot to look forward to in the upcoming season," added Reifman.

The Colorado 14ers is the affiliate team of the Denver Nuggets, New Jersey Nets and Toronto Raptors. Season tickets start around $10 per game for adults and around $6 per game for children 12 years and under.
