Jane Carter, Co-founder of Dance Academy USA said, “This event is one I’m super excited about because I was actually the Founding Director and Creator of the SaberKittens for the SaberCats’ inaugural season.” She continued, “This will certainly be a night to remember for the entire DAU community!”

The Arena Football League approved the city of San Jose's application for an expansion franchise October 26, 1994 to begin play in 1995. San Jose became the fifth AFL expansion team for the 1995 season, along with St. Louis, Memphis, Hartford and Des Moines, Iowa. Following the AFL’s 2009 collapse, The SaberCats re-emerged in the newly reconstituted AFL for their 2011 season with a 76-48 victory over the Spokane Shock. They went on to win against the Kansas City Command 60-57. The SaberCats ended the 2011 season with a 7-11 record. Unlike their disappointing 2011 campaign, in 2012, the SaberCats were able to clinch a playoff spot as the #3 seed, finishing the regular season with a 12-6 record. However, they were defeated 48-51 by the Arizona Rattlers in the first round of the playoffs.
