Yard Dawgz Dancers Join OKC Thunder Girls
OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz are proud to announce eight of their dance team members have been selected for the 2009-2010 Oklahoma City Thunder Dance Team.
Tuesday night the Thunder Girls dance team finals were held at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill in Bricktown. At the end of the night, the list of 40 finalists was trimmed to 18, with eight past and present Yard Dawgz dancers making the cut.
New to the selection process this year is the "People's Choice" vote, which will select the 19th and final roster spot for 2009-10 Thunder Girls. Current Yard Dawgz dancer and former Thunder Girls Captain Erica, from Midwest City, OK, will compete for fan votes against Stacy, from Edmond, OK, beginning on Wednesday, July 22. Fans can vote online at thunder.nba.com and view photos and a video of each finalist. Voting will end at noon on Monday, July 27 and the final Thunder Girl roster spot will be announced shortly afterward.
"I'm very proud that eight of our current and former dancers are able to continue dancing professionally for another team during our offseason," commented Yard Dawgz Dance Team Coordinator Brandy Corcoran. "This experience will only benefit the Yard Dawgz Dance Team and will help us to maintain our position as one of the top dance teams in af2."
Congratulations to the following Yard Dawgz Dancers and new 2009-10 OKC Thunder Girls:
And good luck to Yard Dawgz Dancer and Thunder Girl hopeful Erica H. (2006-2009)!
