Those trying out for a spot included a woman who was a member of the Warriors inaugural dance team when it first started 34 years ago.

"To make history the first time in 1985, would be incredible to do it as a senior team and to continue that legacy, so it's kinda cool," said Robyn Valdes, a former Warriors dance team member.

"It's a lot of ladies here. A lot of different type of ladies and we're just gonna have fun," said senior dance team hopeful Renee Dawson.
