So you think you can dance? The Austin Turfcats announced today that the Lady Cats cheerleaders will be holding an audition on March 3 to fill two extra spots on the 2010 team.

The Lady Cats perform a variety of jazz and hip-hop dance routines throughout the course of the season at each of the Turfcats’ home games, in addition to serving as Turfcats ambassadors in the community.

Those interested in trying out must be 18 or older by March 3 and be able to attend all home games and regular practices (held Monday and Wednesday evenings). In addition to providing entertainment at the Turfcats’ home games and cheering on the team, the Lady Cats are called upon throughout the season to make a number of Turfcats promotional appearances. These appearances range from community and charity events to performing in and around the Austin metro area and Central Texas.

The audition will be held at Gold’s Gym at Tech Ridge, located at 235 Canyon Ridge Drive in Austin, near IH-35 and Parmer Lane. Registration begins at 6:45pm. A routine will be taught beginning at 7:00, then participants will be judged on their performance of that routine from memory followed by a short interview.

Having your company’s name on our team can reach approximately 250,000 sports fans each year. More importantly, a title sponsorship can help establish a scholarship fund for members of our team. With rising tuition, and increased demands on our team, we desperately need a scholarship fund to ensure our program’s success.</blockquote>
