2014 Storm Cheerleader Auditions Announced

Nov 27, 2013

Auditions for the 2014 Tampa Bay Storm Cheerleaders will be held Sunday, January 12 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on the Club Level.

Registration will be from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Sunday, January 12. Auditions are closed to family members and the general public. All participants should park in the Silver parking lot (formerly the West parking lot) and enter the Times Forum at the IOA Executive Suite Level located on the East Plaza.

Day of Auditions – Participants should wear form fitting, two piece dance outfits and comfortable shoes. No jazz pants or baggy pants will be allowed. Dance briefs or boy shorts should be worn with skin tone pantyhose. It is suggested that participants bring make-up/hair products, a towel, bottle of water and a snack.

After introductions and warm-ups participants will learn across the floor combinations including basic kicks and turns and a few short, repeating sideline/dance routines. Participants will perform in small groups and then first cuts will be made.

The second round will consist of a jazz or hip-hop routine that will be taught to the remaining candidates. Then a short break will be given to ask questions and rehearse with the music after the routine is taught. The room will then be cleared and participants will perform the routine before a panel of judges two at a time. A second cut will be made and then the finalists will be announced.

Finalists will then have a short meeting after auditions. Interviews will be conducted the following week.

The 2014 Tampa Bay Storm Cheerleaders will be announced on the team website and all selected team members will be sent an email as well. There will be a mandatory meeting for all 2014 team members the week following the announcement. Practice and workouts will immediately begin on weekday evenings.
