Bust out the dance moves, Cleveland! The Cleveland Cavaliers are hosting auditions this month to find Northeast Ohio’s top freestyle dancers to join the 2014-15 Scream Team! As a central part of the Cavs game entertainment cast, the fan favorite Scream Team is a group of passionate hip-hop performers known for their gravity-defying stunts, head spins, and impressive dance moves.
The search begins and ends with two entertaining events held at one of downtown Cleveland’s newest nightspots, The Bank Nightclub, prior to its official grand opening this fall. (Located in the May Co. building at 200 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH 44114, formerly Barroom.) Cavs fans, friends, and family can join in on the fun and cheer for their favorite dancers throughout the weekend at the new venue. Admission is $5 per event.
“Dance Party” Talent Search: Friday, Aug. 22 at 6:00 p.m.
Interested dancers will perform a choreographed or freestyle routine in a showcase-style audition for a panel of judges. To have some fun, participants will also have the opportunity to go two-on-two in a competition for the title of “Best of the Best”. Not only will the top two secure spots as finalists, the winning duo will receive a grand prize of $150! All “Dance Party” participants must be 18 years of age or older with a valid ID and are encouraged to pre-register online here.
Selected “Dance Party” finalists will be required to attend a private training clinic on Saturday, August 23rd at Quicken Loans Arena from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., where they will hone their skills in preparation of Sunday’s Main Event.
