Why You Should Attend the Pre-Audition Workshops:

We are here to help prepare you for a chance of a lifetime!  Our pre-audition workshop is a three hour workshop that focuses on what it takes to be a Charge Girl! The workshop includes a group warm-up and conditioning, across the floor jazz technique, choreographed routines, a mock audition and a question and answer session at the end of each workshop. Be the first to know what the judges will be looking for in audition candidates, get advice on the best costume option, and learn what it means to be a professional dancer and all that it entails. Again, pre-audition workshops are strongly recommended as preparation for any professional dance team, but are also perfect for anyone just looking to brush up on dance technique and skills.

  • Fresh, new, and exciting choreography will be taught at every pre-audition workshop.
  • Learn Charge Girls choreography similar to what will be taught at auditions.
  • Select pre-audition workshop participants could be invited to bypass Round 1 of auditions.
  • 100% of the current Charge Girls attended pre-audition workshops.
  • Pre-Audition Workshop cost is $20 payable upon arrival.
  • Class is closed for public viewing.
  • Must be 18 years or older.
