RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The Reno Bighorns have announced they will hold open auditions for the 2014-2015 Lady Bighorns dance team on Saturday, August 9 at 1 p.m. at the South Reno Athletic Club.
“The Reno Bighorns Fans witnessed many exciting things last season, but one of the things that stood out was our Lady Bighorns Dancers," said Bighorns owner, Herb Santos, Jr. "If you are a dancer, you will want to take advantage of all of the guidance and training you will receive."
In addition to growing as a dance organization, the team has added another member to their coaching staff. Camille Ruja, a personal trainer and former Sacramento Kings dancer, will join the Lady Bighorns as Co-Director. She says the coaching staff hopes to prepare these women for entering into the arena of dancing for a professional sport team, and bring a part of that to Reno.
"I absolutely want to prep them for the professional world of dance. It's cut throat and requires a lot of discipline. I hope to bring each and every one of the girls out of their shell, and truly make them all they can be," Ruja said. "Having a passion for dance is one thing -- but combining that along with talent and performance can truly put on a great show. I want the audience to feel their energy. It's going to be a great year!"
Those attending are being asked to arrive in full performance hair and make-up, and wear a two-piece audition outfit. Participants will warm up and learn dance routines until approximately 3 p.m., at which point they will perform in front of a panel of judges that will include News 4's Samantha Boatman.
Registration for auditions will be $25 and additional information can be found at Renobighorns.com
