Sacramento Kings Dancers broke a sweat and worked it out in Las Vegas at the Pro Action Dance Convention to bring back more smoldering routines to Sacramento!
Sacramento Kings Dancers bring an array of routines to the court at Power Balance Pavilion every game night and many fans probably wonder just where some of the routines originate.
For three days, Kings Dancers Kelly and Lauren along with SKD Manager Jenn Santich worked out in sunny Las Vegas at the Pro Action Dance Convention to ensure the dancers could continue in that tradition.
Their days began at 8 a.m. and did not conclude until around 5:30 in the evening. During the long and intense sessions, SKD along with dancers from the NBA, NFL, AFL and NCAA learned multiple routines and represented their organizations by rocking them out!
By Day Three, the ladies were exhausted. Seventy-two hours of intense practice will do that to a person! However, their weekend was far from over. An evening showcase was held to exhibit the routines that had been learned over the course of the weekend.
“We performed our four different routines, styles ranging from funky, old school hip-hop to sassy character jazz. In my opinion, we definitely represented SKD well,” exclaimed Kings Dancer Lauren.
The routines the dancers learned will be taken back to Sacramento and not only showcased for their many fans, but also to teach to new Kings Dancers. Kelly exclaimed how she couldn’t wait to teach the new routines to the rest of the girls!
Even though the dancers’ stint in Las Vegas was filled with intense preparation, they also made time to enjoy themselves. On Night One in Las Vegas the ladies attended a dinner party for the dancers and choreographers.
“It was wonderful meeting so many women who have such a similar passion for their own teams, like we (SKD) have for ours,” noted Kelly.
The dancers also used their time in Las Vegas to meet other women who share the same passion for dance. The time they were able to spend together laughing and bonding made the experience that much more rewarding said Lauren.
With the combination of bonding time with fellow teammates as well as meeting new dancers and learning new and exciting routines, it is no wonder the ladies felt it was a wonderful experience.
“All in all, it was an amazing opportunity to get to learn from great choreographers, be able to dance with other professional dancers who share the same passion for performing and, of course, being able to show why Sacramento is the Best in the West!” said Lauren enthusiastically.
