CHARLOTTE, N.C., November 8, 2019 – Johnson C. Smith University’s Golden Bullettes had the opportunity to practice with the Honey Bees, the official dance team for the Charlotte Hornets. 

On Wednesday, October 30, the Honey Bees, led by head coach, Brandii McCoy taught the Bullettes a new routine inside Brayboy Gymnasium. 

During practice, the Bullettes formed new bonds, and learned what it takes to be a professional dancer in the NBA. 

Golden Bullettes dancer Alexys Gabriel’s ‘22, who aspires to be a professional dancer one day, was grateful for the opportunity to learn from professionals. 

“It was amazing to learn about the obstacles that they overcame. I also learned tips to take into consideration before I try out for the Honey Bees next year,” she said.

Janel Joyner, coach of the Golden Bullettes, was truly grateful for the knowledge the Honey Bees provided her dance team.  

Thanks to an outreach program with the Charlotte Hornets, that connects community dance programs and NBA professional dance teams, Joyner was able to facilitate this practice. She hopes it helped the Golden Bullettes gain a new level of confidence. 

“I’m hoping they learned how to work together as a team, realize the sky is the limit and prepare for their future.” 

Joyner feels confident that this experience will become an annual event.
