NBA: Steven Adams shows off ballroom dancing skills at Oklahoma school

He may have some way to go before landing a stint on Dancing with the Stars, but Steven Adams has shown his basketball footwork transfers easily to the ballroom floor.

The Kiwi NBA star joined a couple of his Oklahoma City Thunder teammates at a local elementary school for a ballroom dancing class.

Adams, Dennis Schroeder and Terrance Ferguson stood by, watching the students perform their routines, before joining in to learn a few steps themselves.

The class was hosted by Life Change Ballroom, which teaches teamwork, sportsmanship, confidence, goal-setting and mutual respect.

Adams and the OKC Thunder play the Indiana Pacers on Thursday (NZT) in desperate need of a victory to boost their seeding for the Western Conference playoffs.

Oklahoma has lost six of their last 10 games, dropping from fourth to seventh in the standings, 3.5 games back from third placed Portland.

Adams had a great start to the season, but much like his Thunder, he has struggled to maintain that early form post the All Star break.

With just eight regular season games remaining Adams has dropped below a double-double average for the first time this campaign. The 25-year-old is averaging 14 points per game with nine rebounds and one block.
