Video Tryouts
All tryout videos will need to include the following information:

Full name of athlete
Athlete age as of  December 31st 2018
Best contact number (parent’s phone number)
Where athlete is from (Town or Suburb)
Name of the gym or studio athlete competed with last season
Cheer Level or dance Style the athlete competed last season
Cheerleaders: Position in stunting (main, side, back spot, or flyer) note that front spot is not an option.
Brief explanation of why you want to be a Signature Cheer & Dance Studio Athlete
After providing this information, you can move on to your skills portion of the video.


Cheerleaderss: This will need to include all of the standing and running tumbling that the athlete is able to perform without the assistance of a spotter on a standard spring floor. Any skills thrown with assistance (including skills thrown on a tumble track or rod floor) will not be judged and will not count toward the athlete’s team placement. In the jump portion of the video, we must see 3 connected jumps connected to a tumbling skill. This will be necessary for all levels. We would also like to see the athlete demonstrate their ability as a base or a flyer. Please show your highest level of stunts, including all the body positions, mounts, and dismounts that you are able to perform with perfect technique.  The final portion of the video needs to include a short routine that shows you performing at least one standing tumbling pass, one running tumbling pass, and multiple jumps to standing tumbling. This needs to be done to music with no video editing. *Your personality in your video will also be taken in to consideration.

Dancers: Will need to submit a video of their best Pirouette combination, Grand Jete combination, Right Left and Centre Splits, any acrobatics skills that can be performed safely on the dance floor. Dancers will also need to submit a 2-3 minute routine in the style of their choice.

All video submissions should be emailed to

drobox links and YouTube links are also accepted.
