WALTHAM (CBS) – While there is some doubt there will be an NBA season this year, the Boston Celtics still have their dance team in place.

The team held the final round of Celtics Dancers auditions on Thursday from the team’s practice facility in Waltham, selecting the 2011-2012 squad.

The final round consisted of a two-day competitive dance segment. Each candidate had to partake in a group-choreographed dance, group performances and interviews, and a solo performance where candidates create their own choreography.

At the end of the tryout, a panel of judges chose 18 participants to make up this year’s team.

Dancers are required to try out for the team each year.
