Destiny's Child Looking for 25 Hot Male Dancers

Auditions to Take Place in New York City, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago, & Houston


Destiny's Child is looking for 25 of the hottest male dancers in the country to help promote the multi-platinum vocal trio's forthcoming new album through performances on tour, TV appearances/specials, and music videos. The group is scouting for an international variety of dancers -- all races, all types -- from all sections of the country.

Auditions will be held in New York City (August 8), Atlanta (August 12), Los Angeles, (August 14), Chicago (August 15), and Houston (August 16) and spearheaded by the VMA Award-winning choreographer Frank Gatson. Frank Gatson Jr. and LaVelle Smith Jr. have earned five MTV awards for Best Choreography and are nominated for a 2004 MTV award for Best Choreography for their work on Beyoncé's "Naughty Girl."

"It is my -- and Destiny's Child's -- belief that great dancers are everywhere," said Mr. Gatson. "We are looking for gifted dancers for the new Destiny's Child album. God has given them the gift to dance and given me the gift to see their ability to dance. Dancers have a destiny too. If they are really talented, we will find them."

  Destiny Child will be in attendance at the New York City auditions.
