The Knicks City Dancers
The official cheerleading squad of the New York Knicks, a franchise in the National Basketball Association or the NBA. The Knicks Dancers are one of the most popular groups of dancers in the NBA, having been named as the ambassadors of the League on many occasions apart from being the main entertainment team at the home games of the Knicks in New York City. The group of dancers consists of girls, all of whom are aged between 19 and 27 years.
The Knicks Dancers not only provide entertainment to the fans during the home games of the team but are also ever present at various events that are hosted by the franchise, be it for charity or for the sponsors of the team. Most of the dancers who form the squad are either studying at the universities or have just completed their graduation courses. The main reason why these girls have been chosen to provide entertainment for the fans as well as to spur their team on to victory is because of the fact that these are all local girls and their support for the team is unparallel.
The Knicks City Dancers have been known to take part in various charitable events that are not hosted by the Knicks but as part of the dancing organization that they are under as well and they are known to make appearances at hospitals as well for ailing Knicks fans. The auditions for the Knicks City Dancers are held every year prior to the kick off of the pre-season schedule during which, the participants are judged by former cheerleaders associated with the Knicks and they are chosen after careful scrutiny of their talent and athleticism by the judges. The team does not have a leader and function as a unit.Oakland?s Raiderettes.
