No one understands the importance of the NBA Playoffs more than the NBA dancers themselves. It’s their job to keep the home crowd amped throughout the entire game and during the Conference Semi-Finals, one loss at home could be the difference between making it to the Finals… or staying home.
Sadly, we won’t be able to see all eight dance teams make it to the next round so we thought we’d give you a good look before half of them disappear.
Golden State Warriors Dancers
The dance squad of the #1 ranked team in the NBA is one of the reasons that the ORACLE Arena also boasts the best home court advantage in the NBA. Tony Allen once tried to walk through their dance routine but was mesmerized on the spot.
Memphis Grizz Girls

Ain’t nothing “gritty” about the Memphis Grizz Girls, but they can certainly grind and dance with the best of them.
LA Clippers Spirit Dancers
Now that the LA Lakers are clearly in the rearview mirror of the Clippers franchise, the Spirit Dancers are finally getting the recognition they deserve.
Houston Rockets Power Dancers
Everyone loves a Texas girl, and the Houston Rockets Power Dancers are no different. When they’re not remaking Beyonce songs on YouTube, they’re killing it on the dance floor.
Washington Wizards Girls

Two years ago, the Atlanta Hawks Dancers were responsible for one of the best viral videos of the year. In 2015 they’re still some of our favorite NBA dance squads to watch.
Chicago Luvabulls Dancers
The Luvabulls offer much more than just the greatest name for any dance team in professional sports. Check out their moves on their social media pages or their photos below.

A King is nothing without his court, and the Cavaliers Girls Dancers are the perfect women to get the crowd amped.
