The Rockland Boulders, the area's new Can-Am League baseball team, is looking for players to step up to the plate on another squad - its dance team.
The Rockland Roll dance team, which performs at Boulders home games at the new Provident Bank Park in Pomona in Rockland County, has open tryouts at the St. Lawrence Center bubble in Hillburn, Friday at 11 a.m. Check-in will begin at 10:00 a.m.
The Rockland Roll is looking to add both male and female dancers who are available to perform at the remaining Rockland Boulders home games. Anyone trying out must be at least 18 years of age and have prior dance experience.
The Rockland Roll dance team performs multiple choreographed dance routines during each game and is expected to interact with the crowd while not preforming, including taking pictures with fans, throwing t-shirts into the stands, leading cheers and acting as ambassadors to the Rockland Boulders.
Dancers at the tryout will be taught a routine by Boulders dance manager Megan Clancy and judged based upon how quickly the dance routine is learned, how well the routine is performed and the dancer’s enthusiasm. All dancers are required to have a friendly, outgoing personality
In addition to the dance tryout, a short one-on-one interview is also required for all dancers before the final cut is made.
The Rockland Roll is an internship-based team offering college credit to any students that tryout. The team also will accept volunteers who have a passion for dance or looking to pursue a future career in dance.
