The Atlanta Hawks A-Town Dancers Cheerleaders
The A-Town Dancers are the official cheerleading team of the National Basketball League or the NBA franchise the Atlanta Hawks. The dancers are an ever present entity at each and every home game of the Hawks at the Philips Arena ever since they started performing for the first time since the NBA made it mandatory for all the processional franchises to have their own cheerleading squad. There are currently 17 girls who are all top class athletes as well as dancers in their own right cheering for the team as they take to the court and when they come out on court prior to the arrival of the players, they are met with a cheer as loud as the men playing for the team get, such is their popularity among the fans.
These girls are chosen to represent the A-Town Dancers after a grueling audition process that is judged by a jury board consisting of many former dancers who had been the cheerleaders of the Hawks in their own time as well as the director and choreographer of the squad. The squad also has a junior cheerleading squad that is trained by the director and choreographer of the senior squad also.
Most of the girls in the junior squad are cheerleaders in either their school or college cheerleading team and after they complete the course with the team, if they are considered to be good enough, they are asked to represent the senior squad of the A-Town Dancers. These girls also take part in various charity events that are organized by the franchise as well as represent the NBA in various events. The annual swimsuit calendar of the girls is one of the things that fans look forward to the most and these are sold and the money is given away to charity each and every year.
