Professional Cheerleaders Alumni, Inc. Holds Audition Prep Classes 

Posted by James at 11:08 AM ET

PCA logoThe Professional Cheerleaders Alumni, comprised of former Jacksonville Jaguars Cheerleaders, have put together an Audition Prep Class to prepare ladies (17 & over) interested in auditioning for professional cheerleading or dance teams. Many pro teams in Jacksonville begin holding auditions as early as March for the 2008 season, and these ladies are offering their experience and advice to help make the cut however, these classes do not guarantee placement on a team.

Training classes are held twice a week from January through March at Bailey’s Powerhouse Gym on San Jose in Jacksonville. Bailey’s has partnered with Professional Cheerleaders Alumni (PCA) as their official gym, offering discounted membership to their PCA members and the use of their state-of-the-art facilities for classes such as these.

The Audition Prep Classes will include techniques needed for auditions such as turns, kicks, and basic dance steps. “What’s unique about our class is that it offers an inside edge that only alumni of professional teams can give. We have an exciting program lined up, including a photography session to give ladies tips at looking their best on camera (angles, etc.). A trainer from Bailey’s explained the importance of exercise and nutrition. We also have a makeup artist coming in to show the ladies how to apply colors and what compliments their skin tones best.”, says Darlene Clancy, PCA Board member and prep class instructor.

Donna Windsor, the President of PCA is also teaching classes. Donna says, “We are able to sit down with the girls and give them one-on-one advice about auditions, what to expect, the layout of auditions for most professional teams, and how to make a positive first impression. That makes them feel more comfortable about the audition process and less nervous so they can focus on the combinations they have to learn.”
