Out with the Sea Gals and in with the Seahawk Dancers.
“We are excited to unveil our new dance team for the 2019 season,” Seahawks Dancers Director Courtney Moore said Monday via the team’s site.
“For decades the Sea Gals have been an integral part of the Seahawks organization on and off the field. As we continually look to evolve our gameday entertainment, our dance program will now be known as ‘The Seahawks Dancers.”
The team made the announcement on Monday along with a first look at the 2019 dance team, which includes 30 women and eight men. The director of the dance team says this is the latest evolution of the program.
“We look forward to showcasing many different types of dance styles as the team hits the field this fall,” Moore continued. “We are excited for fans to see what we’ve been working on.”
Eight members of the 38-member dance company are men, a first for the organization.
The Seahawks aren’t the only ones with the change. They are joining the Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles as the NFL franchises to feature male dancers on game days.
