Yesterday (Sunday), I had the opportunity of dancing with the Trojan Dance Force at USC’s Salute to Troy.  This event was tailored toward USC basketball families, specifically the little kids.

We arrived nice and early to review the dance, finish hair/makeup, and stretch a bit.

Radio Disney was there doing hula-hoop contests, teaching dances to the kids, handing out prizes, and pumping up the crowd.  There were arcade games, popcorn/churros, stations to get wax hands, and a green-screen photo area.

After about an hour of mingling and taking pictures with fans, we headed onto the court for the Women’s Basketball Team scrimmage.

When the scrimmage ended, we took the floor and did our routine to “This Is How We Do It”.

The photographer, Pierson Clair, snapped some great photos at the event (all the fancy photos in this post are from him).

After our performance, the Men’s Basketball Team had their scrimmage. We sat on the court and I luckily didn’t get smacked by any basketballs.

It was such a fun day with the team… I love performing, it really makes all the practice worth it!

Q4U: Which sport is your favorite to watch?

I’d say hockey, and I’m bummed that the NHL is on lockdown :(

I’m going to get used to watching basketball though- considering I’ll be cheering at about 30 basketball games throughout the next few months!
