• All necessary forms and application will be available online PRIOR to tryouts, as well as at the JCP on the day of tryouts to complete. We highly encourage all those auditioning to complete the forms PRIOR to your arrival. Please also attach a headshot photo to your application.
• Tryouts will consist of dance, cheer, and technique. Number of cuts is based on the number of people auditioning.
• You will be taught a 4 eight count hip hop/jazz combo routine and demonstrate technique across the floor. You will also learn a cheer/chant and demonstrate rallying ability.
• Tumbling is not a tryout requirement; however, anyone who tumbles will have the opportunity to showcase their abilities. Mats will not be available. Please, no tumbling, unless you have prior experience.
• Judging is based on a selection system. The judges and coach will make the choices and cuts on that day. This helps to expedite the process.
• Individual interviews will be conducted before the final dance cut.
• Once the interviews have concluded, we will hold the final dance cut. We will deliberate for approximately an hour, then announce the 2013-2014 Torero Spirit Team.
• Once the team has been announced, we will have a team meeting and introduction. Please bring a checkbook, as we will be collecting uniform money at that time.
• Each team member will be fitted for uniforms at this time.

* All participants auditioning must be able to complete a clean double turn during the technique portion of auditions.
