Where are they now?: Sonics Dancers

SonicsDancers.jpgAnother thing missed about not having a NBA team is having a dance group over the age of 20. The former Sonics Dance Team performers have dispersed themselves all over Washington since their team departed to Oklahoma City.
Now the women have either completed degrees at Washington or moved to Yakima to open a dental practice and start families. One, Denne, joined the famed Sea Gals and became their calendar cover girl, a position she held with the Sonics.
Meanwhile Sheena Shive (pictured bottom left by NBAE) is working with the Storm Dance Troupe, getting the kids poppin’ and lockin’ like the pros. The Connecticut Sun, New York, and Sacramento either have a mix of youth and adult dance teams or just an adult team.
“We’re all still keeping pretty busy,” said Shive of her former Sonics dance teammates. Her day job is with an advertising agency but her passion remains in dancing.
In addition to directing the Storm’s troupe, Shive will head the new pro lacrosse team’s dancers. Called the Stealth Dance Team, they’ll have auditions at the Everett Comcast Event Center on Sept. 12.
Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the auditions for women 18 and older runs from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m. Checkout the website for more information. Opening night is Jan. 9, 2010 at the Everett Comcast Event Center.
“I’m really excited about this opportunity, I never thought I’d go into coaching,” Shive said.
