Professional Cheerleaders Alumni hold 4th Annual Audition Prep Classes

pcaThe Professional Cheerleaders Alumni, Inc. comprised of former Professional NFL Cheerleaders, are launching the Fourth Annual Audition Prep Classes to prepare ladies (17 & over) interested in auditioning for professional or semi-professional cheerleading or dance teams. Many pro teams in Jacksonville begin holding auditions as early as February for the 2011 season, and these NFL Alumni are offering their experience and advice to help make the cut.

Audition Prep Classes will be facilitated by NFL alumni cheerleaders who will instruct and mentor attendees in prep classes held every other Saturday from January through March at Bailey’s Powerhouse Gym on Baymeadows Road in Jacksonville.

Instructors of this program have extensive backgrounds in dance, from the fundamentals of ballet to advanced gymnastics. Their goal is to share the fundamentals of each discipline so that every participant gets a well-rounded experience and preparation of what to expect at an audition, and understand the responsibilities that come with being a professional cheerleader/dancer. The classes will include:

* Choreographers teaching dance styles such as jazz, hip-hip, kicks, and NFL-style techniques required for most auditions such as turns, leaps and combinations across the floor, proper kick and split techniques, jumps, and other skill requirements. A personal training expert will also conduct targeted exercise workouts and provide nutrition suggestions that the attendees are recommended to follow through auditions.
* Advice from alumni about Presentation, Projection and Attire including audition application tips, choosing the proper head shot, giving a professional and memorable introduction to the judges, interview skills, presenting yourself with confidence and professionalism, proper posture and voice projection and audition attire tips for best fit, color, styles, etc.
* Hair and make-up experts will demonstrate styling and application techniques to apply eye makeup, liner, shadow, and eyelashes, as well as choosing correct colors for specific skin tones, lip color, and recommend tips for long lasting make-up.

The President of Professional Cheerleaders Alumni, Kristin Doakes, says “Over the past three years we have mentored over 150 young ladies to prepare them for professional level auditions. Last year several of our participants made NFL and semi-pro teams and have expressed how helpful these classes have been in preparing them. It’s an honored opportunity to watch them transform and grow, especially in their confidence. Past participants have said that even if they didn’t make the team they are auditioning for, they have grown from the experience we teach in classes.”

You’re going to Vegas, baby!

Get ready for Pro Action Dance [click for website]. I’m talking Mina and Marina Ortega, John Peters, Shandon Koleberg, Andy Vaca and Tony Gonzales. And that’s just a few of the kick-ass choreographers who will break it down for you that weekend:

pad

This summer we are proud to announce the creation of Pro Action Dance, started to train professional sports dancers at the highest level. Our focus is you and your team — we will guarantee that our choreographers will teach material that will take you right to the sidelines or court. No fluff, no lectures, just routines you and your fans will love.

Our first Pro Action Dance Intensive will be held July 23-24 in Las Vegas, NV. While the location has not yet been finalized, we wanted to get you the date so you can save it on your calendar.

The curriculum will include ready to perform material from all genres: jazz, hip hop, novelty, and prop routines will all be offered. Sideline routines appropriate for any type of music will also be available. Each day will also include warm up and technique class.

Our choreographers will be familiar faces who have created material for pro teams throughout the world including NFL, NBA, NCAA, MLS, CFL, and many other professional organizations. Routines will be taught to be game-ready, including professionally cut music and formation charting. DVDs of the routines will be available on the last day (complimentary with minimum team enrollment).

For enrollment information or questions please contact Pro Action at info@proactiondance.com. We look forward to getting your team into the ACTION at Pro Action Dance!

It’s a weekend in Lost Wages. Bring your teammates, bring your girlfriends, or heck, come by yourself and make friends when you get there. You’ll dance all day Friday and all day Saturday. How you spend the rest of the weekend is up to you. Get a massage, try your hand with Lady Luck, or take in a show. (I do not recommend the Celine Dion/Cirque du Soleil thing, however. Kathy Griffin says that show makes no sense and I believe her.)

Audition Prep Classes Held by Professional Cheerleaders Alumni for the 3rd Year

pcaThe Professional Cheerleaders Alumni, comprised of former Professional NFL Cheerleaders, are launching the Third Annual Audition Prep Class to prepare ladies (17 & over) interested in auditioning for professional or semi-professional cheerleading or dance teams. Many pro teams in Jacksonville begin holding auditions as early as February for the 2010 season, and these NFL Alumni are offering their experience and advice to help make the cut.

Training classes are held twice a week from January through March at Bailey’s Powerhouse Gym on San Jose in Jacksonville. Bailey’s has partnered with Professional Cheerleaders Alumni (PCA) again as their official gym, offering the use of their state-of-the-art facilities for classes. PCA, in turn, is offering this class free to Bailey’s members.

The Audition Prep Classes will include techniques needed for auditions such as turns, kicks, and basic dance steps. Darlene Clancy, Director of the Audition Prep Classes says “Our classes offer an inside edge that only alumni of professional teams can give. We have an exciting program lined up, including hair and make-up consultants to show the ladies how to apply and select colors which will compliment their skin tones. A trainer from Bailey’s will discuss the importance of exercise and nutrition. During each class our alumni members will offer feedback, answer questions, and teach choreography.”

The President of Professional Cheerleaders Alumni, Kristin Doakes, says “In the past two years over 100 participants have taken our Audition Prep Classes. It has become a mentoring program for me and our alumni members who volunteer, giving participants one-on-one advice about auditions, what to expect, and how to make a positive first impression. It’s an honored opportunity to watch them transform and grow, especially their confidence. Past participants have said that even if they didn’t make the team they are auditioning for, they have grown from the experience we teach in classes.”
