Ladies and gentlemen, your 2019-2020 BlazerDancers.
After weeks of tryouts and multiple rounds of cuts, the team finally was finally able to decide who had what it takes to be a member of the BlazerDancers.
On Tuesday the team announced the 17 lucky individuals who will make up this season's squad.
Back on June 28th dozens of ladies showed up to PCC Sylvania for the first round of tryouts. During that day of dancing our Jamie Hudson was able to catch up with two of the girls aspiring to make the team. BlazerDancers veteran Ericka and rookie hopeful Malia. Both ladies were announced as members of the team on Tuesday and in the video below you can see part of their journey and understand what it takes to become a BlazerDancer.
After multiple rounds of cuts, 39 of those dancers were announced as the finalists. Those finalists met at Winningstad Theatre on August 4th for one final round of dancing and a chance to impress the judges. Two of the dancers that day, Sabri and Taylor, were coming off their rookie seasons as BlazerDancers and trying to make the squad again. Taylor made the cut and will return for her second season on the team. Unfortunately, Sabri didn't make the final list. Jamie Hudson had a chance to talk to both of them and their families that day. You can hear what they had to say about their experience in the video below.
