The newly imagined UPROAR Dance Team is here. This year we opened up audition parameters to allow performers of all styles, and gender identities to join us. Our diverse group of talented, hardworking dancers plays a valuable role on the sidelines during Lions home games and in the community. Many members of the team balance full-time jobs, university schedules, dance training, and other performance obligations around their UPROAR rehearsal schedule.

At BC Lions home games, the UPROAR can be spotted interacting with fans, launching t-shirts in the crowd, tumbling down the sidelines, hyping up the crowd, and performing alongside Leo the Lion! The crew can also be booked to appear at corporate events, private parties, grand openings, and charity functions.
