Winner: Vancouver Dancing Grounds Crew
Standing a top the field this year are the Vancouver Canadians Grounds Crew. Unlike some dancing grounds crews Vancouver is legitimately made of the real crew who unassumingly take great pride in both there grass (plant) and their grapevine (dance step). Their dancing stands out in Vancouver amidst an otherwise more puritan game presentation, which also helps to create the special aura that surround this team.
Honorable Mention: Charlotte Bobcats Lady Cats
The NBA’s Lady Cats dance team has been rising the to the top of the NBA for the last several years. The team is promoted by the team as a primary entertainment element on the floor and in the community. On the court the high level of talent and choreography match the Bobcat’s belief in the team.
