What to expect on Wednesday Night:

  • Learn the actual Open Call Audition routine with Eagles Cheerleaders Choreographer Suzy Zucker. This enables you to learn and rehearse the audition routine weeks before the Open Call.
  • Participate in a mock audition directed by Barbara Zaun, Eagles Director of Cheerleading. This gives you the opportunity to rehearse the modeling walk that is an important portion of the open call audition as well as practice in the audition room location (the Touchdown Club) without being judged. Find out from the director how this year’s open call audition will be conducted, what the judges are looking for and how this year’s scoring process works.
  • Meet with 2017-2018 Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders during a conversational Q&A session to learn their audition tips and advice for a successful audition, including what to wear. They will also answer any questions you may have and share their experiences as NFL Cheerleaders including information about game day performances, media interviews, goodwill military tours, photo sessions, rehearsals, public appearances and much more!
  • Learn how to pose with poms in front of an Eagles Cheerleaders Step & Repeat to prepare for the photo modeling that is part of the Semi-Final Audition.
  • Consult with hair and make-up experts from Joseph Anthony Retreat Spa and Salon, the Preferred Salon of the Eagles Cheerleaders. Find out how to style your hair and wear your make-up for the audition process. Learn how to replicate the glamour look that they give the Eagles Cheerleaders for game day, and for their trading cards and calendar shoot.

On Thursday Night:

  • Eagles Cheerleaders Choreographer Suzy Zucker will review the Open Call Audition routine in-depth, that was taught on Wednesday night.
  • Suzy Zucker will work on showmanship, posture, musicality, and technique to refine your skills in order to perform the routine at the level that is expected at the Open Call Audition. Current members of the squad will also be available to demonstrate and assist.

    • There will also be a concentration on:

    • Dance techniques to improve kicks, turns, and overall stage presentation
    • Across the floor choreography
    • Stretches that the Eagles Cheerleaders do to increase flexibility
    • Eagles Cheerleaders dance warm-up
    • Dance combinations in the style similar to the combinations that will be taught at the Semi-Final and Final Audition, which will be very beneficial for contestants that advance to those rounds.
  • Thursday evening will also include a tour of the Eagles Cheerleaders Locker Room, Dance Studio, and sidelines of the field where the Eagles Cheerleaders perform on game days – envision yourself as a member of the squad!
