The FREE open-call audition for the 2019 Charger Girls on May 19 will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, Calif. It will take place on the Conference Center Lower Level.
Registration and check-in begin at 10 a.m. followed by the preliminary dance audition at 11 a.m.
On May 19, hundreds of talented dancers will once again compete for a coveted spot on the world-renowned Charger Girls, one of professional sports' most respected cheer and dance teams that has set a standard in the NFL for nearly three decades.
Among the 2019 season's highlights, this year's squad will have the rare opportunity to perform on an international stage when the Chargers host the Kansas City Chiefs at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City on Monday, Nov. 18.
"As much as we're looking for the most talented and energetic dancers, we're also looking for individuals who exemplify great character and have a passion for their community," Charger Girls Director Lisa Simmons said. "Those making the 2019 squad will have a tremendous opportunity in front of them. Not only will they perform and be ambassadors for the organization in the Los Angeles community, they will be representing the Chargers on the world stage in Mexico City this November. This is definitely an exciting year to be a Charger Girl."
Applications can be found online. Applicants must be 18 years or older by May 19, 2019. Dancers are required to send a 5x7 (or larger) headshot and/or full-body shot with their application. Walk-ups will be accepted at the door.
Upon the conclusion of the open-call audition, each finalist will go through a one-to-one interview May 20-21, and a comprehensive panel interview on May 22. The final dance audition is scheduled for May 23.
The Charger Girls will perform at all home games at ROKiT Field at Dignity Health Sports Park and serve as ambassadors for the organization at business, community and charity events. The Make-a-Wish Foundation, Wounded Warriors, American Diabetes Association and D.A.R.E. are among the many non-profit organizations which have benefited from the Charger Girls' support.
