Patriots Cheerleaders held 2014 Preliminary Auditions
When the Dana Farber Field House doors opened at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 5th, a line stretched from end zone to end zone, with 200 hopefuls. Anticipation, excitement and nerves consumed the atmosphere, as the ladies waited their turn to register to audition. They were all there for the same purpose; for a coveted position on the 28-member, 2014 Patriots Cheerleading squad. As the press interviews concluded and media cleared, auditions were underway.
Though they are one step closer to their dream, there is a long road ahead for these finalists. After interviewing personally with Cheerleader Director, Tracy Sormanti, these ladies will join the current Patriots Cheerleaders and promotional model contestants at final auditions scheduled for April 19th at Gillette Stadium.
At final auditions, candidates will be asked to execute two choreographed routines from the preliminary round at preliminaries, as well as a self-choreographed solo routine. In addition to dancing and an optional tumbling segment, they will be given a quiz on Patriots and football facts, will have a meet and greet with the judges and will model a swimsuit similar to a pageant. After a series of leaps, turns, high kicks, and splits, approximately 40 women will advance to boot camp. This selected group will participating in a demanding two week training program, attending rehearsals, public speaking drills and fitness training sessions. By early May, the 2014 Patriots Cheerleading squad will be announced.
