Vecchiarino makes Celtics Dancers again

BOSTON - North Providence resident Jessica Vecchiarino once again made the cut when the Boston Celtics held the final round of auditions for the 2013-2014 Celtics Dancers last week.

Vecchiarino, a long-time dance instructor at Dancin' Spirit Performing Arts in Pawtucket, first made the team last year.

Last week's auditions consisted of one-day dance intensive competitive segments including technical dance combinations, a choreographed dance routine featuring all candidates, group performances and interviews and a solo performance in which candidates created their own choreography. Of the 30 candidates participating in the final auditions, 20 were named to the 2013-2014 squad. The dancers will appear at every home game during the upcoming season.
