The search begins today to see which women will become members of the 2010 Gold Rush presented by Coors Light. Maples Pavilion at Stanford University is now filled with dancers looking to join the world-famous cheerleading squad. Stay tuned to this blog throughout the day for photos from the auditions! All photos are courtesy of 49ers.com and Brandon Vaccaro photography.
Everyone has learned the first part of the dance and now it is time to perform in front of the judges.
The first round is now complete. The judges’ scores will be calculated and the first group will be cut in half before the second round begins.
“We’re teaching a little bit of the dance routine, checking out their crowd appeal, their energy and seeing if they have what it takes to make the squad,” said Erin Olmstead, director of the 49ers Gold Rush. “They perform in groups of three in front of our esteemed judges panel and then wait to see if their name is called. Those girls are welcome to stay and learn another routine so they can go through the whole process again. Hopefully their number will be called again at the end of the day as we announce our finalists.”
The members of the 2009 Gold Rush will have to re-audition as well. They were given a bye for the first round and will rejoin the group to learn the entire routine shortly. We’ll keep you updated with more photos as the second round begins.
LEARNING SECOND HALF OF THE ROUTINE
All the ladies are making their way down to the court now to perform the entire routine in front of the judges.
