Shorebirds Dance Team to Debut in 2011

PRESS RELEASE – The Delmarva Shorebirds are extremely excited to announce the formation of the brand new Delmarva Shorebirds Dance Team, which will debut during the 2011 season. Registration is now open to children between the ages of six and 18. The Shorebirds have partnered with the High Voltage All Stars.

The Shorebirds Dance Team will undergo weekly technique and choreography lessons at High Voltage in preparation for six performances at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium during weekend Shorebirds games throughout the summer.

“The dance team is something new and fresh that will increase the entertainment value at Perdue Stadium,” said general manager Chris Bitters. “We have really worked hard to make the experience a very affordable one for all families.”

Each dancer will receive a custom designed uniform, practice gear, two free Shorebirds tickets to each performance, a VIP parking pass, countless hours of instruction at High Voltage, a chance to perform in front of large crowds at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium and an end-of-season party to be held at Perdue Stadium during a Shorebirds game.

The Shorebirds Dance Team will be separated into two teams based on age and prior dance experience. However, no dance experience is required to sign up for the team.

Dancers will be required to attend weekly dance/choreography lessons, which will be held at High Voltage studios, located at 1303 South Salisbury Blvd, Suite D. The dance studio is located across from Salisbury University and next to The Fractured Prune. A schedule of lessons will be available upon sign up.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Delmarva Shorebirds. The Shorebirds Dance Team members will learn 2-3 routines that they will perform in front of the crowds at the games,” said Justine Lathbury, co-owner of High Voltage All Stars.

“We are excited to open our facility to the dancers and we are planning routines that they are going to love,” said Kathy Brown, co-owner of High Voltage All-Stars.

Dance lessons and choreography will be taught by two experienced instructors. Brittney Marshall will serve as the dance team coach and will be assisted by Alexz Goldin. Marshall’s dance experience includes ballet, Bennett’s Rock and Roll Revival, and a scholarship in field show dancing in college. Goldin is currently a dancer for the Untouchable Dance group at Salisbury University.

The Shorebirds Dance Team will perform on the following dates at Perdue Stadium: May 28, June 4, July 1, July 30, August 12 and September 3. The dancers will perform pre-game, in-game and postgame.

The Shorebirds and High Voltage will hold two registration dates at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium. The first registration day will be on Saturday, January 29 from 2-4 p.m. and the second registration day will be on Saturday, February 12 from 2-4 p.m. Both instructors will be on hand to answer questions and meet parents. Plus, High Voltage All Stars and Shorebirds representatives will be in attendance. In addition, Sherman the Shorebird will be there to greet the kids and light refreshments will be served.
