SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The road to becoming a member of the 2014 Charger Girls begins Sunday, March 2 with a pre-auditions workshop from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Jenny Craig Pavilion at the University of San Diego. Registration begins at 1:30 pm.
With more than 400 dancers annually auditioning for a spot on the NFL's hottest dance team, pre-registration for the workshop is recommended as space is limited. Pre-registration can be done on Chargers.com and a non-refundable cash-only fee of $50 will be collected upon arrival at the workshop. The workshop will help prepare dancers for the official auditions in April. The three-hour session will include a dance clinic, mock audition, audition tips and a Q & A with members of the 2013 Charger Girls squad.
"We host a workshop every year to give a better understanding of the entire process," said Charger Girls Director Lisa Simmons. "We work with them on dance technique, choreography and put them through a mock audition. We do our best to prepare them for what they can expect in April."
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.
The Jenny Craig Pavilion is located on the University of San Diego campus at 5998 Alcalá Park.
