MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - Lace up your dance shoes and get ready to grit and grind on the dance floor. Ladies, the Memphis Grizzlies are holding auditions for the Grizz Girls dance team next Saturday.

"A lot of dancers don't know, 'How do I prepare for a professional audition? What do I look like, what do I wear, how do I carry myself?' So I think it's really important to have this seminar basically to give them all the in and outs and get them properly prepared," said Grizz Girl Choreographer Tamara Moore.

Moore says if you want to be a Grizz Girl, pre-audition clinics are where you need to be. Thursday night is the 1st of 2 pre-audition clinics held on Thursdays at the New Ballet Ensemble. Ladies are encouraged to come out to get a leg up on the Grizz Girls dance tryouts.

"I mean I've been dancing all my life so it's really important to be out there," said Tierra Perry, who is auditioning.

If you plan to audition, you should be prepared to sweat. You'll learn everything from floor drills to kicks to audition choreography. These clinics aren't just for the rookies.

"I kind of already know more what to expect than probably the other girls but I've still got to be on my A game and I kind of feel a little more pressured since I have been here to do really well," said Cassie, who has danced with the Grizz Girls for six years.

"We're looking for some of the best dancers in the Mid-South so if there's any girl out there who thinks she's got what it takes and she would love to perform in front of 18,000 amazing fans then she needs to come on out," said Moore.

The Grizz Girls dance team will hold their first round of auditions Saturday, June 22nd at Rhodes College.
