So, you may recall that during the last Jazz home playoff game there was a little problem with the dance team that resulted in the Nu Skin Dancers only performing limited routines as well as rumors that maybe the dance team would be eliminated altogether.
Well, apparently the days of #dancergate are behind us. Not only are the Jazz holding dancer tryouts for next season, today they announced a trip to China for six lucky ones from last year’s squad.
Here’s the press release:
SALT LAKE CITY (June 8, 2012) – The Nu Skin Jazz Dancers are visiting Shanghai and Guangzhou, China, from June 6 – June 18 in conjunction with Shanghai Citizens’ Game Opening Ceremony on June 10. The opening ceremony will be livecast globally by Greatsports Channel and Dragon TV.
