It’s audition time and you can be front row and center for it all.

The Atlanta Hawks are getting ready to host the final round of auditions for their 2022-2023 ATL Dancers. The team is comprised of elite dancers and community ambassadors under the Hawks Entertainment umbrella.

The dancers have already been through a number of auditions - the first three rounds of auditions were held virtually. This final audition will be super exciting because the final 16–20 person team for the upcoming season will be announced during that time. Before they can hear their name called, finalists will have to perform both a choreographed and pre-rehearsed routine. The finalist will be judged by 10 judges with professional dance backgrounds.

“We are excited to assemble our incredible team of ATL Hawks Dancers and we look forward to seeing some tremendous competition from talented individuals,” said Donni Frazer, Hawks Director of Entertainment. “The showcase at State Farm Arena provides us with a great opportunity for friends, family and fans to rally together and celebrate these dancers.” The ATL Dancers are held in high regard by the organization. “These integral members of Hawks Entertainment add to the overall experience at State Farm Arena and serve as brand ambassadors throughout the city of Atlanta. They have played an integral role in the Hawks leading the NBA in overall game experience in previous seasons amongst various surveys.”

So, how do you become a part of the action? Well, the ATL Dancers are selling tickets to the final audition with proceeds going to the Atlanta Hawks Foundation. You can grab your tickets for the showcase on Sunday, Aug. 7 at 2 p.m. on ticketmaster.com.
