Think you can dance? 2016 Felions tryouts take place Sunday

Dec 19 2017, 8:14 pm

If you ever wanted to be part of a pro sports dance team, you’ll get your chance.

The Felions, the official dance team of the B.C. Lions, are holding dance team auditions on the morning of Sunday, February 28.


Felions tryouts are competitive every single year, with 100-150 hopefuls trying out for just 32-36 spots. Just like Lions training camp, everyone is required to try-out, even the returnees.

It goes without saying, competition will be fierce.

Contestants will perform a “simple across-the-floor dance routine” for the judges. Unfortunately, I don’t think rhythmic gymnastics streamers are allowed.

Maybe trade the pompoms in for streamers, Felions. It could revolutionize cheerleading/dance teams in the CFL. Just an idea.
