Charger Girls Kick Off 2013 Auditions

Posted Apr 8, 2013

Auditions for the 2013 Charger Girls squad are underway, with nearly 500 hopefuls whittled down to just 72 after the first day.

Nearly 500 hopefuls entered the University of San Diego – Jenny Craig Pavilion on Sunday for round one of the 2013 Charger Girls Auditions.

At the end of the long day, which included two dance routines and seven hours of performances and judging, only 72 remained to move on to round two.  Eventually 28 members will be named to this year’s squad.

“The first phase of the process was actually really fun,” said Kahlee, a newcomer who was one of the lucky 72 who survived the day. “All of the girls around me were really engaging and really supportive, so it was really easy to get into the movement. And it was taught over a long period of time so I had plenty of time to practice.  I really enjoyed it.  It was fun choreography and I got my groove on, so it was great.”

Returning members got a bye early in the morning, not having to perform the initial routine and jumping right into the second dance number.

“This process as a veteran is very different,” said Anjelica, a member of the 2012 team.  “From your rookie year you kind of come in with the expectation of seeing all these beautiful women and getting just the idea of how tryouts are run.  Then you come in as a veteran and you feel more prepared, so it’s really nice to know you know what’s coming.  So it feels better as a veteran because you’re prepared and ready for it.”

The next step in the audition process takes place on Wednesday when the remaining girls will interview for the gig.  Then, on Thursday April 11, the final dance routines will take place and the 2013 Charger Girls roster will be announced.
