I would like to have any part I could, But I know I could fit into the marching band, since I played the alto Sax all four years in High School at Creston in Grand Rapids.

    I’m very interested in becoming a cheerleading extra in this film. I have been on several competitive all star cheerleading squads, high school squad, and have won numerous awards for cheerleading, dance, and was also homecoming queen of my high school. I am willing to fly out whenever needed for auditions. I also am able to do interviews over the computer if needed. I have several videos of my squads on youtube including Orlando Flames Senior Level 5 team.

    Thank you very much

  11. Lauren Jordan says:

    I’m interested in the high school student or cheerleading role. Ive been cheering for about eleven years and have been a varsity cheerleader at Grosse Pointe North High School since freshman year. I have some tumbling skills, can baskspot and base, but my best attributes are my spirit facials, my voice, and my motions. I have been scouted by Cheer Michigan, and they want me to tryout for the organization in February.
