PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles just wrapped up the first week of free-agency, adding some key players to next year’s team. Now it’s time for the Eagles Cheerleaders to do the same.
Open Call Auditions for the Eagles Cheerleaders will be held Saturday, March 22nd at the Novacare complex in South Philadelphia. If applicants are able to move past this stage, they’ll perform in the final auditions on Monday, May 5th, at the Kimmel Center for The Performing Arts.
Registration begins at 10:30am on Saturday for the Open Call Auditions, with judging beginning at 1pm. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, and have a high school diploma.
There is a $25 application fee, but that fee is waived for those who attended the squad’s mock audition. Applicants can register online at this location (with an additional $8 fee). Contestants can also apply the day of the auditions at the Novacare complex.
As for what goes on at the auditions, the Eagles website describes it this way:
There are two parts to the Open Call Audition: Modeling and Dance. When entering the audition room which is located in the NovaCare Complex Auditorium, contestants will walk in a set pattern to their places and then walk individually in front of the judges. This will be considered the modeling portion of the competition and will give the panel of judges the opportunity to score on physical fitness, confidence, and beauty. The contestants will then perform the dance routine twice in small groups. The judges will be scoring on dance ability including execution/technique, retention of choreography, and showmanship. There will be two elimination rounds during the Open Call audition.
And the judging?
During the Open Call Audition, contestants will be judged on dance ability including retention of choreography and execution/technique, physical fitness, beauty, confidence, and showmanship.
