The 2015 Silver Dancer Auditions Finale was live at the Arneson Theatre and there was a lot more to celebrate than the new dancers being chosen! Silver & Black Give Back donated all of the proceeds from the event to the Greater San Marcos Youth Council for Flood Relief in Hays County, raising a total of $2,500!
Five hundred fans packed the Arneson Theatre on July 26 to spectate and cheer on their favorite dancers as they performed on stage. Each one of those fans donated five dollars upon entrance that went straight to the Greater San Marcos Youth Council.
Celebrities and local personalities joined the judges panel to decide which 16 of the 30 (31, if you count the Coyote) dancers would make the team for the upcoming season. After all the dancers performed, Spurs in-arena host Chuck announced which dancers had made the team as they appeared on stage to loud applause.
Congratulations to all of the 2015-2016 Spurs Silver Dancers! To meet the new team, click here.

This summer, Silver & Black Give Back selected 10 former Team Up Challenge students to serve alongside our executive review committee as part of the Summer Team Up Challenge. These former Team Up Challenge participants helped to decide where Silver & Black Give Back's Summer Team Up Challenge funding would be distributed and will go on site visits to the selected nonprofits throughout the summer.
Each of these students will also receive a $1,500 scholarship toward his or her higher education.
