2012 Optional Audition Workshop
The following is information pertaining to our Optional Audition Workshop, a program designed to better prepare candidates for the audition process. Though attendance at the workshop is not required, it is highly recommended. It's common for workshop participants to be successful in the audition process as they are well prepared.
This workshop is open to participants only. Guests will not be permitted inside the event facility. Upon your arrival, you will be required to sign a waiver prior to your participation. After a brief registration process, a group warm-up will be conducted. Next, you will be taught several dance combinations. These combinations will be different from the routines that you will learn at preliminary auditions, however, they will familiarize you with the style and level of dance ability that is expected of squad members. We will also review the high kick and free style categories of the audition process.
The next segment of the program will include a detailed discussion regarding the agenda for audition days, judging criteria, proper attire, hair and makeup suggestions, resume and photo requirements, and some tips on how to have an outstanding interview. You will also be informed on what to expect should you be selected for the 2012 cheerleading squad including information on rehearsals, personal appearances, photo shoots, game days, travel opportunities. The discussion will end with a Q&A segment.
You should wear fitted workout attire and sneakers or dance shoes. Your outfit should complement your figure, and your hairstyle and makeup should be worn to flatter your appearance as well. Although you won't be judged during this event, remember that first impressions are lasting and you want to feel and look your best. Be sure to bring plenty to drink and a healthy lunch.
At the conclusion of the program, each person attending the clinic will receive an autographed panoramic poster of the 2011 Patriots Cheerleading squad. The most important material you'll take home with you will be practical and valuable information on the audition process.
