Varsity Dance · Dance: Diamond Girls perform at FedEx Forum


By Kris Freeman, Sports Information Director

MEMPHIS – An experience of a lifetime happened Saturday night for the White House Diamond Girls Dance Team, performing at the pre-game festivities for the Memphis Grizzlies at the FedEx Forum.

With many friends and family watching on, the team helped kick off the game as the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Denver Nuggets, 101-94.

The White House Diamond Girls had their first competition earlier in the year during basketball season and finished first in the hip-hop category at the showcase, where they were later asked to perform at the Grizzlies game.
