Auditions for UVU Cheer Squad are welcome to all incoming freshman, transfer students
and current UVU students. You will be taught all material at the clinic that you will
need to showcase at the try-out. You MUST be previously accepted to UVU and show proof
of acceptance. Other requirements for auditions are highlighted below.
There is a 2.5 required cumulative minimum GPA for all existing UVU students or any student who has taken any UVU courses (concurrent enrollment) and has a GPA at UVU to try out for any UVU Spirit Squad team.
Please wear appropriate dance attire that allows the judges to see the body move. Come with a comfortable jazz shoe or other appropriate footwear, No socks or bare feet will be allowed. Also come performance ready, hair done with make-up on. Look your best!
The UVU Dance Team auditions begin with 2-3 technical combinations that will be taught to you as you showcase across the floor. These will include such skills as but not held to, leaps (front, side, back, switch, tilts) triple and quad pirouettes, battements and fouettes. After the across the floor portion of the audition, the judges will make a cut. You will be asked to showcase your best technical or gymnastic skill at this time. You will have 30 seconds to do so. We will also ask that you come prepared to showcase a variety of difficult fuette and leap combinations. Those who proceed onto the next phase of the audition will learn 1-3 short combinations, a contemporary jazz, pom or hip-hop. After the dance portion of the audition, the judges will make a cut. Those finalists will stay for a short interview process. The new UVU Dance Team will then be announced via this website within the following week.
