How should I fix my hair and make-up?
Makeup should be glamorous but not too heavy. A hairstyle that is up-to-date and compliments your features should be worn. Jamison Shaw Hairdressers is the Hair Salon for The Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders. They are fabulous. You can book an appointment by calling 404-262-3777.
When and where are Atlanta Falcons cheerleader Practices?
Last season, the cheerleaders practiced on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7-10 p.m. at Midtown Athletic Club at Windy Hill and had some practices at the Georgia Dome. You can expect practices to range from two-to-three times per week, somewhere in the Greater Atlanta vicinity for the 2011 season.
Do the cheerleaders travel to away games?
No. The Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders do not travel to regular season away games. They are required, however, to cheer at all 10 home games (two preseason and eight regular season games).
What is the salary for an Atlanta Falcons cheerleader?
The cheerleaders get paid a nominal fee for each of the 10 home games they perform. There are also opportunities for paid appearances throughout the season. It is required for the cheerleaders to have a full-time job or be a full-time student because being an Atlanta Falcons cheerleader is not a full-time paying job.
What is The Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader Show Troupe?
The Show Troupe is comprised of 12-15 members of the Falcons cheerleading squad who audition for spots on this traveling troupe. The troupe performs a one-hour costumed variety show. There are additional required rehearsals for this special group. The troupe performed overseas for the U.S. troops in North Africa/Middle East for 10 days during the Thanksgiving holiday in 2002, departed for Cuba/Puerto Rico in 2003, traveled December 2005 to Kosovo and Bosnia and 2006 toured the Pacific (Japan, Okinawa, Hawaii and Guam).
Do the current cheerleaders have to audition again?
Yes. Each cheerleader must audition every year. The cheerleaders do not have to audition at the preliminary auditions but must compete in the finals. The panel of judges cannot tell who has cheered and who has not at this final audition. The current cheerleaders have an interview portion as well and do not know the material taught at the final audition.
