Date: Saturday, March 4, 2017
Time: 9:30 a.m. registration. Those advancing past all rounds should expect to be in attendance until 7:00 p.m.
Location: Pieri Gymnasium at Dean College, Franklin, MA (Directions)
Age: Must be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or GED by the date of the workshop to participate. No exceptions can be made.
What to Wear: Neat work-out attire. Arrive with warm-ups over it and sneakers or dance shoes
Preliminary Auditions will be held on one day only. If you are unable to attend that day, there will not be a make-up date scheduled. They do not accept videotapes in lieu of auditioning. As preliminary auditions will not be open for public viewing, guests will not be permitted into the audition facility. You should wear neat work-out attire and sneakers or dance shoes for the audition. Be sure to bring warm-ups as it may get cool during the waiting periods. A neat and polished appearance is best. Your hair and make-up should be performance-ready. Think “glamour” rather than “sporty”. You should also bring plenty to drink and a healthy lunch. Upon arrival, you will line up to be checked off the registration list as you should have already completed an application form online. You will be asked to complete a waiver and submit a $20.00 audition processing fee. Numbers will be assigned in line order. Candidates should also bring a resume and photo, as outlined above.
Participants will be taught choreographed dance combinations and may be given an opportunity to perform a freestyle combination as well (music will be determined on the day of preliminaries). Several tabulations will be made throughout the day and approximately 40-50 dancers will be selected to participate in the final auditions. Each dancer advancing to finals will schedule a half hour personal interview with the cheerleader director at Gillette Stadium at a mutually convenient date and time prior to final auditions.
