Los Angeles Charger Girls Auditions Set for May 6

Open call auditions for the 2017 L.A. Charger Girls begin Saturday, May 6 at Edwin W. Pauley Pavilion on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles.
 
To prepare dancers for the week-long audition process, the team will hold four optional workshops leading up to the preliminary auditions. The selection process will culminate with final dance auditions on May 11. 
 
"We are excited to start the audition process and form a team of 28 beautiful and talented dancers who will proudly represent the L.A. Chargers and our community," said Charger Girls Director Lisa Simmons. "The workshops provide a great opportunity for dancers to get a jump on the process and I encourage all candidates to participate. Our goal is to help every dancer prepare for the start of auditions on May 6."
 
The optional workshops are designed to prepare dancers for the audition process and introduce the style of choreography performed by the Charger Girls. Material presented will include: application tips, style guides, interview preparation and more. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with current Charger Girls and participate in a question-and-answer session with Simmons.
 
Workshop pre-registration is recommended and space is limited. Registration is now open online at LACHARGERGIRLS.  The workshops cost $40 each and are non-refundable. On-site cash-only registration also will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. 
 
The workshops will take place at four Southern California locations on the following dates:

A fixture on the Chargers' sidelines since 1990, the Charger Girls are known as one of professional sports' most talented and respected cheer and dance teams. Hundreds of hopefuls from across the country as well as overseas are expected for the day-long dance audition on May 6.
 
"We expect the complete package in a Charger Girl," said Simmons. "We not only look at talent, performance and showmanship, but also their passion to represent the Chargers in the community."
 
The Charger Girls perform at all home games and appear in the team's annual swimsuit calendar. They also serve as ambassadors for the organization at hundreds of business, community and charity events throughout the year. Each year the Charger Girls select one organization to benefit from its calendar sales. Past recipients include the American Cancer Society, American Diabetes Association, Rady Children's Hospital, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
