Led by choreographer Aura Benwick and coordinator Alexandra Severyn, the Felions Dance Team consists of 35 beautiful, talented and hardworking dancers who play a valuable role on the sidelines during Lions home games.
Many members of the team balance full-time jobs, university schedules, dance training and other performance obligations around their Felions schedule. Hailing from all over the lower mainland and Fraser Valley, the squad rehearses in downtown Vancouver every week from April through November. At every Lions home game, the dance team don their team colours to perform at the Street Party and hit the field to entertain thousands of Lions fans and cheer on the CFL's most exciting football team!
The Felions are a busy group throughout the calendar year, making appearances in the community and raising funds to join the other CFL dance and cheer teams during Grey Cup week, including participating in the exciting CFL Dance Showcase during the week-long Grey Cup Festival.
The Felions are ambassadors of the BC Lions Football Club at many events through the year. They are always proud to represent the Lions at community, charity and corporate events that help raise funds for various charities and initiatives.
Interested in becoming a Felion? Auditions for the Felions Dance Team are held in the spring prior to each season. The dance team members are chosen based on appearance, personality and dance ability. Following two days of intensive tryouts, British Columbia's best talent is ready to hit the sidelines at BC Lions football games for another season of excitement.
