JACKSONVILLE – The 2013 South Division Champion Jacksonville Sharks and Attack Dance Team have announced the dancers who will make up the 2013-14 Attack squad. The final Attack roster was determined following Saturday’s final round of auditions, held at Latitude 30 in Jacksonville.
The “Latitude Live” room at Latitude 30 was packed full of fans, friends and family from the start of finals on Saturday afternoon. The capacity crowd grew to such a large size that the Fire Marshal was forced to turn fans away after the event began.
“We had a tremendous turnout for today’s finals,” Attack Dance Team Director Kimberly Mayo said. “We owe huge thanks to Latitude 30 for their help in making today great. The phenomenal fan support went a long way toward bringing out the best in our dancers, and we are incredibly excited for what is in store for the Attack this season.”
During finals, each dancer performed a kick routine and three separate dance routines in front of a panel of eight judges. In addition, youth athletes from First Class Athletics had the opportunity to showcase their skills to the crowd during breaks in action. First Class Athletics is the cheerleading gym owned and operated by Mayo.
This year’s addition of the Attack consists of a diverse squad of 17 dancers, featuring a solid mix of veterans and rookies. Performing as part of the 2013-14 Attack will be veterans Allison, Ariona, Emily, Lauren, and Shelby. Joining the veterans this season are rookies Ashley P., Ashley S., Ashton, Katrinna, Katie, Kayla C., Kayla W., Kayleigh, Kelsey, Macy, Shelby and Stephanie.
The 2013-14 Attack Dance Team is now available to appear at corporate events, charity benefits and other community functions. For more information about booking the Attack Dance team for an event, please visit jaxsharks.com/danceteam/appearances.
