This past weekend, the Buffalo Bandettes held tryouts to see who was going to cheer on the reigning NLL Champions, the Buffalo Bandits! In addition to 5 brand new faces this season, the Bandettes are welcoming back 2 familiar faces to their ranks as well.
Canadian-born Danielle spent the 2005-2007 seasons dancing with the Bandettes and even with her season off, she still contributed some of the choreography last season as she wasn't ready to give up the dancing just yet. Considering she's been dancing since the age of 3 and acting in local plays as well as earning a Bachelor's Degree in Theater, everyone who knows her knew she couldn't stop performing for too long.
Denise only spent the 2005 season as a Bandette but also spent time cheering on other Buffalo teams before and after that. In 1994-96, she was on the sidelines of the Ralph as a member of the Buffalo Jills. She spent the 2000-2003 seasons at HSBC Arena cheering on the Buffalo Destroyers as a member of the Buffalo Bombshells and she even was a part of the short-lived Rush squad cheering on the Buffalo Rapids, the team that, until last month, was known as the Buffalo Sharks.
The next few weeks, the Bandettes will be putting in a lot of hours of practice and you can see them in action on December 7th from 11-1 at the Bandits Open Practice at HSBC Arena.
