Bandettes tryouts announced!

The only current official pro dance squad in Buffalo has just announced tryout dates and their audition prep class dates.
First up is the optional audition prep class. This year, there will be two of them and interested dancers can take either one or both if they want. The first will be Monday, September 19 while the second will be held on Thursday, September 22. The extra date will not only enable those young ladies an extra opportunity to try it out in case their schedules won't allow them to on one of the days, but will also enable some extra prep in helping them to make the 2017 Buffalo Bandettes squad. Both classes start at 6:30pm and cost $25 each to attend. If you choose to attend both, the cost is only $40. Classes take place at the Lexus Club in the First Niagara Center. Please wear comfortable dance clothes and sneakers for these classes.

The tryout dates this year will be September 28th and 29th at 6:30pm and also will take place in the Lexus Club. A $25 registration fee is required. The 1st night, you will be taught a routine to perform on the 2nd night. Routines are typically about a minute long and if you make the squad, you'll perform it in front of the fans at games a few different times during the 2017 Buffalo Bandits season.
The first night, when you will learn the routine, please wear comfortable dance clothes and sneakers.
The 2nd night, you'll need a business casual outfit for an interview and sports bra, dance shorts, tan tights, and sneakers. Full hair and makeup is also a requirement for the 2nd night so look your best! As a professional dance team member, a high school diploma is required and the age requirement is 18 years old. Also, you'll be asked to bring a head shot to auditions.

This year, the Bandettes will only take young ladies with a minimum of 3 years of dance experience. However, if you don't meet that requirement and feel you can do well enough without that background, please attend the audition prep classes and let Mandy and Stephanie know you'd like to be considered.
If there are any further questions, email and the coaches will do their best to answer any questions you may have.
