The Mavs are looking for women who are high school graduates at least 18 years of age or older who are "talented, energetic, physically fit and love to perform in front of large crowds." The ladies who are selected will perform at the team's home games at American Airlines Center and represent the team on national and local television, print media and appearances throughout DFW.
Dallas Mavericks Dancer Prep Classes will be held at Elevation Fitness Club in downtown Dallas from Monday, May 20, 2013 through Monday, July 8, 2013. The classes will be held Monday through Thursday from 7-8p.m. and 8-9 p.m. There will not be any classes on Monday, May 27th, Wednesday, July 3rd or Thursday, July 4th. While classes are not mandatory, they are specifically designed to prepare dancers for the audition process.
Last summer's DMD auditions were held at Gilley's Dallas and had 246 ladies show up to chase the dream of performing in front of 20,000 fans in person and millions more on television. This year sees the tryouts moving back to the Anatole, just north of downtown Dallas with registration for the preliminary round beginning at 9 a.m. Proper attire includes half top (any style, any color), short shorts (any style, any color), nude hose (any brand), white socks and white shoes (dancer sneakers or athletic brands).
For those who make it beyond the first round, the finals auditions will be the next day (July 14) beginning at 11 a.m. at the Anatole. This is where the incoming candidates join the returning veterans for the chance to move on to training camp, which is July 15-18 at Elevation Fitness. The final team will be announced July 18th.
