To heck will all of that talk about lockouts and decertification.
Let’s catch up with Ms. Chato Waters and the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders today.
The team is set to hold their 2011 cheerleading auditions on Sunday, March 20 at the Georgia World Congress Center. Several audition prep classes will take place leading up to the auditions. Also, cheerleader Sara D. has some nice advice in her blog.
For information about the prep classes, including dates, times, places and cost, visit atlantafalcons.com.
The Falcons completely revamped their cheerleader program in 2010 with a new look, including new uniforms, new
logo and overall a new approach.
The cheerleaders will continue to be a big part of the game day experience in 2011 – you know if there isn’t a lockout — with an increased presence in the stadium.
Some of the innovative changes started last season included cheerleaders greeting fans at gates, visiting fans in the stands and suites.
The cheerleaders also produced a swimsuit calendar for the first time in years which was shot in Cancun, Mexico.
The Falcons are searching for ladies again who epitomize the “New South” – young, glamorous, hip, attractive and intelligent.
