August 21, 2018 – Slinger, WI – A 2018 Slinger High School graduate has made the Milwaukee Bucks Dance Team. Tannor Allar, 18, is currently a freshman at Concordia University in Mequon.
She auditioned as an NBA cheerleader over the weekend, made it through three sessions of tryouts and then it was announced she was one of five rookies to make the 2018-2019 Milwaukee Bucks Dance Team.
“I was the second to last number to get called so I didn’t think I was going to make it and then when they called my name I was just overwhelmed and enthusiastic,” Allar said.
A dancer since she was 3 years old with the Hartford Energizers Dance Team, Allar has won the World Dance Competition three times.
“I think the Bucks liked my dance experience and dance has been my life,” she said.
Allar said the tryout process was tough. “It was very intense and intimidating because I was one of the youngest,” she said. “It was fun and all the girls were really nice and welcoming.”
Practice for the Bucks Dance Team is three days a week from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. and on weekends.
“I will be at every home game dancing on the court,” Allar said. “We get our uniforms this week and it’ll be really fun to be dancing in the new arena.”
