NOTE: These are dance classes only. If you wish to find out all the details about becoming a Detroit Lions Cheerleader, be sure to attend the official DLC pre-audition clinic on Tuesday, April 24th!


The purpose of the master classes is to provide audition candidates an opportunity to train in a variety of styles of dance. The class skill level will be in the intermediate to advanced range all geared for aspiring professional performers who dream to achieve a coveted spot as a Detroit Lions Cheerleader. All classes will include a warm-up, applicable technique, and dance combinations taught at a rapid speed to mimic the fast-paced nature of the DLC rehearsals. The schedule and the classes are designed for the dancer to focus on refreshing and mastering basic skills for success as a professional dancer. Attendance in the classes does not guarantee that individuals will make the team.
