Attention, ladies of Southern California! Think you have what it takes to entertain Jack Nicholson & other only-there-to-be-seen celebrity fans at Staples Center this season? Well, now’s your chance to dance!
The Los Angeles Lakers will be holding tryouts this Saturday for their 2008 edition of the Laker Girls. Hopeful honeys willing to shake it like a Polaroid picture in front of Kobe & crew need to report to the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, CA, at 9 a.m. sharp.
However, any ogling Laker fans looking to get a sneak-peek preview of this season’s squad are out of luck.
According to the press release regarding attendance at the tryouts, “Press OK but no guests or spectators allowed.” So, all you guys out there better get to forging those credentials!
As for the aspiring dancers, here’s what’s required for the audition:
• Must be 18 years of age
• 8 years dance experience recommended
• Bring photo (headshot preferred) and resume [It’s probably best not to mention any previous employment with the Celtics.]
• Only dance or athletic shoes with non-marking bottom allowed
• MUST DRESS IN A LEOTARD or BRIEFS & CROP TOP - WITH FLESH COLORED TIGHTS
Or to avoid all this bureaucracy, try reporting directly to Jerry Buss’ office (in a leotard or briefs & crop top with flesh colored tights, of course). And who knows - one lucky girl may just land herself an NBA scouting gig.
For further information about the tryouts, contact dance team director Lisa Estrada. She’s already done wonders for Sasha Vujacic.
