PHOENIX -- Would-be dancers: here's your chance for your 15 minutes of fame!

The Arizona Rattlers Sidewinders dance team will host a dance clinic for dancers ages 5-19 years old on Thursday, May 15. That clinic leads up to a special halftime performance for the team's May 18 home game against the Spokane Shock at US Airways Center at 3 p.m.

Dancers will have the unique opportunity to learn choreography and dance technique from current Sidewinders dancers, giving them a hands-on experience learning from professional dancers. 

"We're really looking forward to involving the cancers," Sidewinders dancer Tierney told 3TV's Heidi Goitia on Thursday's Good Morning Arizona. "It's kids' night at our games on Sundays, so we're looking forward to getting them to dance with us at halftime."

The registration fee for the clinic is $50. The fee includes dance instruction, an autographed Sidewinders team photo, a lower-bowl Rattlers game ticket and an official Sidewinders dance clinic tank top for the halftime performance on May 18. Participants will receive a $10 discount if they already have a game ticket.

Check-in and walk-up registration begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 15 inside US Airways Center pavilion. The dance clinic will run from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., and parents of the participants are invited to sit in and watch the clinic. An autograph and photo session with the 2014 Sidewinders dance team will take place at the conclusion of the clinic.

Participants are encouraged to pre-register by emailing
Complimentary parking will be available for the clinic on May 15 in the US Airways Center garage located at 1st Street and Madison Street.
