Audition FAQ

How can I best prepare for the audition?

We highly encourage anyone planning to audition to attend the audition master workshop and prep classes. They are very informative and will help prepare you for audition day.

What is the audition process like?

For prelims, applicants will perform 30 seconds of improvised dance followed by the preliminary audition routine in groups of three for a panel of judges. There will usually be a small group that is requested for a call back audition. Cuts will be made and candidates will be narrowed down to approximately 50 finalists. The 50 finalists will spend the next week being tested on their dance technique, fitness, football knowledge and interview skills. On Sunday March 24th, the finalists will be scored at the final showcase that is open to the public and held at the Hilbert Circle Theater. The 2019 Colts Cheerleaders will be announced at the end of the show.

What is the best advice for someone auditioning?

We encourage candidates to watch videos of the current team online to learn the choreography style. Interview and fitness are also an important part of the audition process. We recommend that you practice your public speaking and have a fitness regime leading up to auditions.

If I make the squad, what is the time commitment?

The cheerleaders practice every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00-10:00pm from May-January with occasional weeks off. Cheerleaders perform at all home games and participate in appearances in the Indianapolis area.

Is this a full time job?

No, this is a part-time job. Cheerleaders are compensated for all games, practices and appearances. We do encourage all cheerleaders to have a full time job and/or be a full time student.
