Charlotte Knights to unveil new dance team

Posted: Updated:
FORT MILL, SC (WBTV) -

The Charlotte Knights are starting their last season in South Carolina with a new addition to the team... dancers!

The Knights, whose season opener was set to be Thursday night before being rain-delayed until this weekend, are launching their new dance team next week during the team's first home game.

Fans who came to the team's Knights Fest, at Knights Stadium, on Saturday got a sneak peek at the team's first-ever dance team.

Now, the Knights need your help in naming the team.

Fans interested in naming the team can email their suggestions to Media Relations Director Tommy Viola at tommyv@charlotteknights.com. Entries must be received by next Tuesday, April 9 at 5:00 p.m.

The winning name will be revealed on Opening Day during the Dance Team's pre-game performance on Thursday.

The dance team won't be at all of the Knights' home games, but will be featured in 11 games this season.

"The Dance Team will play an integral part of our on-field entertainment during our final season at Knights Stadium," said Knights General Manager of Baseball Operations Scott Brown. "We expect them to bring an exciting new element to our games. Having them perform will be a great way for us to boost the energy at the stadium!"

The Charlotte Knights Dance Team's official dance studio is Anne Marie's Academy of Dance.

During each game that the team performs, fans in attendance will have a chance to meet and greet the girls on the Knights Stadium concourse. Photos with the girls and autographs are encouraged!
