How can I prepare for the annual LSU Tiger Girl Dance Team Auditions (typically in mid-spring)?
We are looking for well-rounded dancers in all areas of jazz, hip-hop and pom technique. If you have not had experience in a certain area of dance, it is recommended to please gain experience prior to auditions. Our Audition clinic is a great resource. Dance Studios and College squads are also great resources to find help with private lessons.
In addition, if you do not dance on a high school squad and you are on a competitive team only, please consider getting a private coach to assist you in learning “game day” cheerleading. Being talented is important but you must also know how to “lead a crowd” and cheer in front of fans as well as dance. Your Performance score will play a vital role in the audition process.
While we do not have a weight or height restriction, our girls range in size from 100 pounds to 145 pounds and 5’0 to 5’11. Your appearance score and technical scores are extremely important and typically carry the same percentage at tryouts. A combination of appearance, technique, hip hop, pom and performance will all factor in to an “overall effect” score.
