CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Gladiators are pleased to announce that on Monday, January 28th, the team finalized the roster for the 2008 dance team. The team also announced that the dance team will be called the GODDESSES.

Goddesses choreographer Crystal Colar and the Gladiators staff held the 2008 dance team finals at the House of Blues Cleveland on Monday night. In all, Colar selected 16 women to form the inaugural team.

“I was extremely impressed with the quality of dancers we had for the finals,” said Colar. “The girls worked really hard during the two-day boot camp and they looked much improved from the tryouts last Saturday.”

Along with Gladiators representatives, a panel of celebrity judges took part in the event, including Cleveland Browns defensive tackle SHAUN SMITH, WOIO 19 Action News Sports Anchor CHUCK GALETI, SportsTime Ohio personality AL PAWLOWSKI and ESPN 850 WKNR representatives AARON GOLDHAMMER and MARK “MUNCH” BISHOP.

Members of the Goddesses include current students at local colleges, business professionals and former dance team members. As a part of the Goddesses, the ladies will be responsible for attending public events and representing the organization throughout the greater Cleveland area as well as performing at all eight Gladiators home games.
