The Shooting Stars are a dedicated and diverse group of dancers who perform at all Atlanta Dream home games. Selected by a panel of judges each spring, the Shooting Stars are a composed of both females and males, combining years of professional cheer and dance experience with an eclectic mix of styles. In addition to providing on-court entertainment, the Shooting Stars also make an impact off the court, serving as community ambassadors in the Atlanta area.
The Shooting Stars are led by first-year coordinator Vera Rose (left). She directs the Shooting Stars in rehearsal and at games, preparing them for an in-game presentation which includes dance performances and participation in special game promotions. Rose was a member of the 2015-16 Atlanta Hawks Cheerleaders, returning to the team, which she also performed for from 2004-09. She is as a Licensed Territory Owner with Creative Movement and Dance.
