    Attendees of June 25 event automatically advance to second round


    PORTLAND, Ore. -
    The Trail Blazers will host a pre-audition workshop for aspiring BlazerDancers this Saturday, June 25 from 5 - 8 p.m. at the Lloyd Center LA Fitness , prior to the annual BlazerDancer open tryouts.

    The workshop is intended to prepare dancers for the audition process, practicing routines and learning helpful tips. Anyone who attends will automatically advance to the second round of tryouts. The workshop is $25 per dancer.

    "We wanted to give the dancers an idea of what to expect during the audition process," Trail Blazers Performance Teams Manager Michelle Woodard said. "Anyone who has never tried out, or would like advice is encouraged to attend."

    The open tryouts will be held July 9 and 10 at the Trail Blazers Practice Facility (7325 SW Childs Way). Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday. Participants must be available both days, be at least 18-years-old and bring a head and full-body shot.

    Approximately 40 finalists will be selected to go through an interview process and participate in the final round on Sunday, July 17, where each dancer will perform a 1-minute solo routine.

    Comcast SportsNet will not film the tryout process this year.

    The BlazerDancers are comprised of 16 dancers chosen to best represent the organization at Trail Blazers games and throughout the community. All interested dancers, including members of last year's squad, must participate in the tryout to earn a spot on the squad.
