Bucks looking for entertainers
The Milwaukee Bucks are looking for fun, energetic and talented folks willing to dance to the beat of a different drum this season. The Bucks will hold auditions for their game night entertainers – including the new Young Bucks Dance Team – on several dates in September.
Auditions for Hoop Troop will take place on Sept. 7 at the Milwaukee Bucks Training Center at 3501 S. Lake Dr., St. Francis) from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Hoop Troop is the interactive team ready to rally the crowd at a moment's notice and bring added excitement and enthusiasm to Bucks games and events throughout the community.
The Rim Rockers are the Bucks team of daredevils that perform their innovative and high-flying trampoline dunking at Bucks games, in the community and all around the world. The Rim Rockers will hold their tryouts on Sept. 10 from 7 to 10 p.m. at Elite Sports Clubs located at 13285 W. Burleigh Rd. in Brookfield with a workshop being held on Sept. 3 from 7 to 10 p.m. in advance of the tryouts.
No experience is necessary for the workshop and tryout. Athletic individuals will be taught the techniques and fundamentals needed to dunk and flip off of trampolines. Interested individuals must be at least 18 years of age for both the workshop and tryout. Attendance at the workshop is not mandatory to take part in the tryout, although it is encouraged.
Bucks Beats drum line tryouts will take place on Sept. 13 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Milwaukee Bucks Training Center. This talented group of musicians brings a rhythmic beat to the BMO Harris Bradley Center with their loud and boisterous sound.
Seniorgee! tryouts will take place on Sept. 17 from 5 to 10 p.m. at the Elite Sports Club located at 11616 N. Port Washington Rd. in Mequon. The Seniorgee! Dance Team, made up of men and women over the age of 55, is entering its sixth year as an entertainment fixture at Bucks home games.
The seniors debuted on Feb. 27, 2007, to an unsuspecting crowd during a Bucks game against the Golden State Warriors at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. By the end of their routine, the instant fan favorites received a standing ovation for their inaugural efforts. Since then, Seniorgee! has performed at multiple Bucks games, local TV appearances, Summerfest and a variety of other events.
Debuting in the 2013-14 season will be the new Young Bucks Dance Team. This brand new performance group will be comprised of girls and boys ages 7 to 13 that have great personalities and love to entertain. Any kids with experience in dance, cheerleading, tumbling, break dancing or martial arts are encouraged to join. Tryouts will be held Sept. 24 from 5 to 10 p.m. at the Elite Sports Club in Mequon.
