The Dallas Mavericks Dancers, known to DFW basketball fans as the 'Hottest Dance Team in the NBA,' are always evolving and ahead of the curve in terms of style and choreography.
Mavs fans who attend the home games at American Airlines Center are well aware that they are going to an event that is full of entertainment in addition to the NBA contest on the court. There are videos on the big screen, interactive games with fans and, of course, the Mavs Dancers performing to ensure that fans have a good time.
Since the Mavs Dancers appear on the court at least three times per game -- opening, first and third quarters -- and usually spend the bulk of the 4th quarter among the fans in Section 109, they will change outfits several times during an evening. There are also theme nights including '80s' and 'Military' where they will have on entirely different uniforms.
With a new NBA season that will quickly be upon us, Mavs Dancers Director Mallory Mills and company are looking to add a new uniform to the rotation and are giving fans the opportunity to voice what they want to see the ladies clad in when they take the court. They have posted two new options for fans to vote on through Facebook. To view the new uniform options and vote, visit here. Voting is open until June 30 at midnight.
For the ladies who would like the opportunity to wear these new outfits out on the court in front of 20,000 fans in the arena and millions of people on TV, the Mavs Dancers auditions are July 13th at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas. 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." Further details on the auditions, prep classes and applications are available here.
