Washington Wizard Girls: New Name, New Director, New Look 

Posted by James at 8:27 PM ET

logoLots of exciting changes for the Washington Wizards dance team. As you probably noticed in the title of the post or in the new logo, the team is now the Washington Wizard Girls.

We're really excited about the Wizard Girls new Director Jessica Pikulski. Jessica, a good friend of the blog, just finished her fourth season as a Washington Redskins Cheerleader. Before that she was a Washington Wizards Dancer so this is sort of homecoming for her.

The Line-up Fashion Show

This photo from The Line-up's fashion show at the last year's P.R.O. Convention foreshadowed Jessica's return to the Wizards.

And then Jessica has even bigger news. She's seven months pregnant! So double Congratulations to Jessica and her husband on the new job and their first child.

Selecting an NBA Dance Team is no easy task, especially if you are in your third trimester. Fortunately, Jessica is going to get some great help from a couple of Former Wizards Dancers Brianne Ritzert and Kelly Owens. (Kelly was also a Redskins Cheerleader with Jessica)

And let's not forget the upcoming auditions. Ladies in DC, MD and VA get your dancing shoes and come on down the the Verizon Center on Saturday, June 28th for the Wizard Girls Auditions.
