Cheerleaders Rumors

The Atlanta Hawks are now accepting registrations to participate in open cheer team auditions for the upcoming season. The Hawks Cheerleader team is presently made up of 30 young ladies that represent Atlanta’s NBA team off and on the court, including performing at home games and making special appearances at community events, all to enhance the fan experience. “Our audition process is always an exciting time. We aim to select a personable and diverse group that represents the city of Atlanta and the Hawks brand,” said the Atlanta Hawks’ Senior Manager of Fan Experience, Donni Frazier. “How enthusiastically they embody our True to Atlanta spirit is equally as important as their dancing abilities.”
Salary was not discussed in the month-long unpaid bootcamp Herington attended prior to being hired by the Bucks. This was also the case at a workshop I attended for potential Clippers dancers for another article last year, where we were told wages would be discussed only after we were hired. It was also the case for Murray, who recalled of the Warriors Girls, “They have a day where you come in, and you read the contract together, and you sign it. And that’s when I found out I was making $10 an hour. I remember just being outraged.” “There was no discussing it,” Herington said, of her experience signing after she’d already relocated to Milwaukee to work on the team. “It was, ‘If you have an issue, then you can go ahead and just leave.’ We weren’t allowed to take it home, and go through it or anything like that. It was just handed out at practice. We signed it and gave it back.” According to the agreement, she would be paid $30 per bi-weekly two- to four-hour practice; $65 per weekly 6.5 hour home game; and $50 per two- to four-hour public appearance.
The Los Angeles Clippers’ dance squad is getting its own reality series. E! Entertainment said Monday the series that is scheduled to debut early next year will show what it’s like to be a member of the squad on and off the court. Eight one-hour episodes of “L.A. Clippers Dance Squad” are scheduled to air on the cable network. The show will take viewers through summer auditions to choose the squad and the dancers’ emotions and ambitions. Among the producers of the series is Cash Warren, husband of actress Jessica Alba and whose father Mike Warren starred at UCLA under basketball coach John Wooden. The show is produced by Mandalay Sports Media, whose co-founder is Peter Guber, a part-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
