|Dear Prospective Denver Broncos Cheerleaders|
|Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a Denver Broncos Cheerleader for the historic 25th season. We look forward to a season long celebration of the legacy the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders have cemented in the Denver community, and we want you to join us!|
|1.||GET IN DANCE CLASS! The women on our team are consistently the most well trained, technical performers on the NFL stage. If you aren't in class it is hard to come to auditions at your peak.|
|2.||SHOW UP IN TOP PHYSICAL SHAPE. Like any athlete who tries out for a team, you are judged on how you look that day. Don't leave anything to chance. Make sure you are at 100% to look your best and to have the stamina to look great during a long audition week.|
|3.||DON'T GET DISCOURAGED IF IT'S NOT YOUR YEAR Most women who audition do not make the team in their first shot at it. For many women the audition process is new. Soak in all the information this year and be ready to take what you have learned and work on what you need to for next year.|
|Ways to Prepare|
|The Denver Broncos Cheerleaders offer two ways to prepare for auditions. Audition Prep Classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday starting in mid-February. Classes will cover dance technique, flexibility, choreography and performance skills. Taught by DBC alumni Christina & Toni, these are a great way to hone your skills and pick up our unique style. We have also added an interview Prep Class this year for those of you who would love a little extra training in speaking skills. This class will be taught by DBC alumni, Toni, who works for Daniels Career Services at the University of Denver.
Director, Shawna Peters, and Assistant Director, Shelly Trujillo, will host the 2017 Audition Workshop on Saturday, March 11th. The focus will be on giving you all the tools you need to have a successful audition including dance technique, audition pointers, interview workshop, and finalist week specifics.
