The Rochester Knightingales are beginning to prepare for the 2014 season and will be holding auditions on Saturday, September 14th at the Radisson Riverside Hotel.  The Radisson is located at 120 East Main Street in Downtown Rochester and dancers will be expected to be at the hotel from 9:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  The Knightingales are looking for enthusiastic, personable individuals who are ready to take on the responsibility of dancing for a professional sports team.
All dancers considering trying out for the Knightingales must be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or GED.  Every dancer must also be able to attend all scheduled practices, which are Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Harro East Gym from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., as well as games and appearances.  There is a set of rules, along with a team handbook, and a contract that each individual trying out must sign and follow.
When attending auditions, it is important for each dancer to follow the dress code provided by the Rochester Knightingales.  Arrive at auditions wearing a black sports bra or midriff top, black shorts and pantyhose.  All individuals must have full hair and makeup done and no jewelry, except wedding or engagement rings.
There is a $35 cash only registration fee, which each dancer is required to bring to auditions.  Everyone trying out must also bring a non-returnable photo, $4 for parking money and money for lunch.  It is suggested to bring water as it won’t provided.
Being a Rochester Knightingale certainly has its perks, as you get to cheer and dance for the back-to-back National Lacrosse League World Champions.  Along with that, as a dancer you obtain a free gym membership and tanning memberships.  You not only form a new group of lifelong friends, there are many other benefits and pay for games is going to be discussed as the season approaches.
