While the prep classes were not required, dancers in attendance received a valuable sneak peek at the new team choreographer's style and expectations. Most who participated hope the additional sweat equity will help them get one step closer to securing a spot on the team. One thing is certain, they received one heck of a workout in the process.

All energetic and talented dancers are encouraged to try out for the team this Saturday at FedExForum. Registration will begin at 9 a.m.

While the first round of auditions are closed to the public, fans are invited to attend the Grizzlies Dance Team Audition Finals at the Horseshoe Casino - Bluesville Monday, August 13 from 7-9 p.m.
