Very Tough Spot to Land
Have you ever wondered how the NBA dance teams and cheerleading outfits select from a pool of literally thousands of athletic and beautiful as well as talented women to be finalists on the squads in the NBA? It is a very tough spot to land and if you give us a few minutes of your time we will explain to you how a team is created for cheering on and exciting the throngs of fans in the stands.
It all starts with preliminaries. Every season huge numbers of aspiring dancers and cheerleaders brave rainy and very humid and hot weather from July 1 to the final audition for the Houston Rockets Power Dancers with a chance to own a spot on the squad.
The first round sets up the entire feel and emotion of the competition that is said to be one of the stiffest in the entire League. The State of Texas has three NBA basketball teams and three professional dance teams.
There is only one Houston Rockets Power Dancers squad and that one is located deep in the Heart of Texas and Houston.
Very Tough Competition
After a very tough competition with only a handful of girls being asked to come back for the final audition it is then down to one 3 to 5 minute solitary performance that will either make or break the girls chance on landing a spot on the Houston Rockets Power Dancers squad.
The judges are normally an eclectic bunch taken from the staff of the Houston Rockets, the local media and special guest such as Kirk Cameron and former Rocket players.
