About Us:

 The Boston Cannons Dance Team is a professional dance team that performs at all Boston Cannons home games at Gillette Stadium and any additional league games hosted in Boston which have included events such as the MLL All Star game and MLL Championship weekend. Dance team members are paid for game day performances.

The Boston Cannons Dance Team practices once a week for two hours during the season (March - July) at DanceFIT Studio located in Natick, MA.
