The Stealth Bombshells, dance team of the 2010 National Lacrosse League Champion Washington Stealth, announced today that auditions for the 2011 squad will take place on August 28 at the Comcast Arena at Everett. The Stealth has also announced that Jillian Boprey will take the reigns as the director of the premiere dance team in professional lacrosse.
Boprey takes over the Bombshells director duties after spending last season as a member and co-choreographer of the dance team. For three seasons, Boprey was a member of the NBA’s Seattle Supersonics Dance Team. She also danced in the NBA Madness Tour in Japan and worked as Motion Capture Talent for EA Sports NBA Live 2009. She continues to work as a choreographer and instructor for Elite Performance Dance Camps and Kirkland Dance Center. Boprey assumes the director role following the departure of Sheena Shive, who was instrumental in developing the Bombshells into one of the NLL’s top dance teams in just its first year in Washington.
“The Stealth organization is indebted to Sheena for her hard work and professionalism in making the Bombshells a showcase dance team in the NLL,” said Stealth President David Takata. “From auditions through uniform design, choreography and game performances, Sheena has excelled at every opportunity and our fans noticed. We wish her well in her future endeavors.”
“Jillian has worked closely with Sheena and has a pedigree of professional experience that makes her the logical choice to direct the Bombshells for the 2011 season,” added Takata. “I have the greatest confidence that Jillian will prove her leadership and talent are worthy of the standards set by Sheena.”
The Bombshells auditions will be held at the Comcast Arena at Everett on August 28. Registration will begin at 11am with the auditions starting at 12pm. The Bombshells will also be holding a pre-audition workshop for interested women on August 18 from 7pm-9pm at the Seattle Epicenter.
“We had such a strong team last year and we are striving for the Stealth to continue its reputation as not only the best lacrosse team in the league, but also the best dance team,” said Boprey. “With Bombshell auditions right around the corner, I am so excited to see the talent and potential at the Comcast Arena on August 28th. We had such a positive response from the community in our inaugural season and our second time around is going to be even better.”
The 2010 NLL Champion Washington Stealth will take the floor for their title defense in January 2011. Season tickets are available now and start at just $120 for a ten-game package.
