What will the judges be looking for?
Appearance, Dance Ability, Showmanship, Poise, Personality, Attitude, Work Ethic, Education and Future Goals.

What is the time commitment? Is this a full-time job?
No, being a Houston Texans Cheerleader is not a full-time job. Most of our team members are full-time students, full-time mothers, or have full-time jobs. The time commitment is usually nine hours a week of rehearsal time and during the season, up to 16 hours a week including games.

Do current team members have to re-audition?
Yes, all members must go through the audition process each season and are not guaranteed their place on the team.

What can I do to prepare for auditions?
Dance! Call your local dance studio and ask about technique and choreography classes. Work on stretching, kicks, turns, and choreography. You can even join a funk aerobics class. You need to be able to pick up choreography fairly quickly and feel comfortable performing for the judges.  Work out!!
