Storm still looking for dancers

SUMMERSIDE - There will be second round of dancer auditions for the summer side Storm Dance Team.

Team organizer Tina Mundy said the judges were satisfied with the results of the auditions held Sunday in summer side, but are looking for more candidates.

Six team hopefuls put their talents on display before the selection team of Mundy, choreographer Kashena Bartlett, four-time World Highland Dance Champion Tony Cargill, and Summer side Storm marketing representative Bill Schurman.

Schurman told the dancers that the Storm Dance Team will be a professional operation and will play a big part in the basketball team's success.

Bartlett, a talented dancer and choreographer in her own right, put the dancers through their paces Sunday as the selection team rated their abilities.
Mundy said the next audition has yet to be arranged, but it should take place this coming weekend, probably in Charlottetown.

She said anyone interested in trying out for the dance team is advised to watch the local newspapers and to check the summer side Storm Facebook page at Summerside Storm - Friends of Island Pro Basketball for the time and place.

Mundy said there are some minimum requirements for the applicants. Besides being 16 years of age and older the dancers that are selected must be capable to attend rehearsals two days a week. One of the practices is on the actual game day.
