Golden Girl auditions slated for April
The Alcorn State University Golden Girls are looking to add more talent to their roster.
The dance group is gearing up for their Golden Girl Auditions Sunday, April 10 in the E.E. Simmons Gymnasium (Old Gym) at 6 p.m. The participants are required to pay a $50, non-refundable registration fee at the Fine Arts Building at 8 a.m. Those who are interested in auditioning should bring black biking shorts, a black sports bra, gym shoes, a white T-shirt, tights, money for lunch in the cafeteria and a 60-90 second CD of recorded music for individual dance evaluations. The auditions are open to the public.
Golden Girls Coach Senobia Rogers said that participants should be hard working, committed to dancing and creative.
“We are searching for talented girls who understand the importance of putting in the time and effort to becoming an outstanding dancer,” said Rogers. “The girls who are selected to be a part of the team will be expected to maintain a healthy lifestyle by dieting and exercising. They should also understand the value of being creative and bringing new ideas to the table.”
Rogers also emphasized that although dancing is a big part of a Golden Girl’s life, education comes first.
“I want the new girls to perform just as well in their studies as they do in the auditions and field routines. It’s fun to showcase their talents in front of large crowds, but they should always remember that their education is a priority.”
