Cheer Audition Diary: Week 2


Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders auditions are coming up this week, and two-year team veteran Sara D. is well into her preparations for the grueling few days that will decide if she'll be back on the team for the 2011 season. Follow her path to auditions and beyond in her new diary that will be featured each week here on

Hopefully, you’ve read the first entry in my audition diary and now feel as though you've had a peek into the world of auditions for a veteran.

Surely, you loyal Falcons fans know that preliminary auditions for the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders are this Sunday. That is (are you ready for it?) THREE days away! I know it's equally exciting to me as it is to any of the new girls who are considering auditioning.

At this point in the process, my to-do list is a mile long.

While, yes, it includes fun things such as "rhinestoning" my audition top, intensifying workouts, streamlining my nutrition and other similarly related things, it also includes getting ready with the rest of the team.

Today, the veterans of the 2010-11 AFC team will learn the first half of the audition choreography. This officially kicks off AFC auditions week. Our team choreographer, Jakene Ashford, will no doubt create an audition routine that is a challenge and embodies the absolute essence of AFC style.

Tonight, it's time to lock in, focus and get ready for the intense week to come.

As I prepare for tonight, which is just as much a part of auditions as the rest of the week, I take a step back and reflect on the 2010-11 season and how special it was. It motivates me to look ahead with the very serious goal of making the team for a third year. I'm so honored to have you reading about my journey, and of course, appreciate all the support I've received.

So read on, loyal Dirty Birds! And I'll be back soon to fill you in on everything prelims, finals and, of course, AFC.

As always, you can follow me on Twitter @AFCSara or on Facebook.
