Open call auditions for the new Los Angeles Charger Girls begin Saturday, May 6, at Pauley Pavilion on the UCLA campus.
However, throughout April, to prepare dancers for the weeklong audition process, the team will hold four optional workshops leading up to the preliminary auditions. Selection process will culminate with final dance auditions on May 11.
“We are excited to form a team of 28 dancers,” said Lisa Simmons, Charger Girls director.
“The workshops provide an opportunity for dancers to get a jump on the process.”
Optional workshops are designed to prepare dancers for the audition process and introduce the style of choreography performed by the Charger Girls. Material includes 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 Ms. Simmons.
Registration is open online at LACHARGERGIRLS. Workshops cost $40 each and are non-refundable.
