The Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders Audition Finals

The dueling and grueling audition road to Training Camp is over for the next class of the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders. Congrats out to 38 women moving on. The ladies will participate in a seven-week boot camp that consists of workouts, etiquette training, team building, uniform fittings, look development and performance training. Cuts are possible during the training camp period.

Long time Cheer mentor, Dorie Grogan, who is now Sr. Director of Entertainment and Brand Impact shared her joy of the day with us. “It is a dream come true for these women because it’s much more than just cheering on the sidelines. It’s a sisterhood, the bond of these ladies, whenever they’re rehearsing. It’s also an opportunity to travel the world representing the Dolphins and a chance to give back with community initiatives.”

“We are looking for beautiful, talented women who are dynamic, that have great energy about them and we believe these 38 ladies have it”, Grogan stated.
