The V.I. Raiders are nearly unbeatable at Caledonia Park, and one of the reasons is because the V.I. Raider Girls add to the home-field advantage atmosphere.

The dance team is holding auditions for the coming season this Sunday (June 16) at the Beban Park Social Centre.

The Raider Girls are looking for experienced hip hop or jazz dancers, or gymnasts who can keep a beat and keep up with fast-paced music.

Alysha Grisé, the team’s new coach, said she’s looking for energetic, dedicated and positive girls/young women at least 15 years old who will be comfortable dancing in front of a crowd.

Grisé will teach the group a short routine, which the girls will then be asked to perform in small groups.

Prospective dancers should show up at 10:30 a.m. to sign in and stretch, and auditions go from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Girls should wear comfortable dance attire and bring along a head shot photo and a $10 tryout fee.
