Thirty-two women make up the Sea Gals, a sideline dance group that balances a busy schedule of practicing, performing and making public appearances in the community throughout the year. Sherri Thompson, who has been involved with the Sea Gals since 1981 as a squad member (1981-83) and choreographer (1984-86) will begin her 30th year as director. Former Sea Gal Courtney Moore will begin her second season as the Sea Gals’ choreographer. In addition to numerous practices and gameday performances, the Sea Gals are heavily involved in the community, donating much of their time to benefi t local charities and organizations. For the past 27 years, the Sea Gals hold an annual fundraising event to provide Christmas presents for the women and children living at a local women’s shelter. The dance group also established the Sea Gals Guild at Seattle Children’s Hospital, which they contribute to annually. The squad raised more than $30,000 at their annual auction and designated Broadview Women and Children’s Shelter and the Sea Gals Guild as recipients. The Junior Sea Gals has become a popular program for girls ages seven to 14 and sold-out for the third-consecutive season. The Sea Gals work directly with these young ladies to develop character, team building and dance skills. The Sea Gals “Show Group” performs a variety show that includes colorful costume changes, character dance routines, singing and crowd participation. The group has performed across the nation, Middle East and European military bases. Fans may learn more about the squad at seagals.com.
