Coming Soon to an Arena Near You


America exports nearly everything, and sometimes it’s the best we’ve got. For example, the NBA and Chinese beer giant Tsingtao Brewery are joining forces to launch a cheerleading competition to air on the state-run television channel. The winners of the competition will get the opportunity to come to the US and train with a real NBA dance team! Besides the dance competition, according to producer Su Ling, the show will also focus on “NBA culture … Michael Jordan, the Lakers and basketball history.” Sounds exciting!

After the success of the cheerleaders at the Olympics, the “la la dui,” which is the Chinese word(s?) for the dancers have gained much more mainstream acceptance. The NBA-Tsingtao show, called “Qing Wu Men” in Chinese, which translates roughly into the very catchy “Young Dance Stage.”

Look out world, China has too many people to not overwhelm NBA dance teams with floods of young hot dancer girls. Which, now that I think about it isn’t necessarily a bad thing…
