2017-18 auditions will be held at Miramont Lifestyle Fitness North on Saturday, August 26.

The Eagles Chicks are a high-energy team that supports the Eagles event presentation efforts at every home game, as well as various community events. From the moment the doors open until the final horn blows, the Eagles Chicks are devoted to entertaining and energizing the Eagles crowd!

Dance Clinics:

Come attend two dance clinics hosted by the Eagles Chicks directors in order to prepare for auditions! These clinics will be held at the Miramont North location on Friday, August 11th and Monday, August 21 from 8-10pm.  For more information please email eagleschicks@coloradoeagles.com.

What to expect at the auditions:

Registration will begin at 10:30 am. It is recommended dancers arrive early to register to allow time for stretching and application completion. Preliminaries will begin at 11:00 am sharp. Dancers will start by learning a short, high-energy jazz routine and a 2-3 eight-count across the floor combination involving kicks, double pirouettes and leaps. Preliminary cuts will be made and all remaining dancers will proceed onto finals.

Finalists will learn additional choreography and participate in an interview round where they will be asked questions regarding their work ethic, character, and Eagles/hockey knowledge. After interviews and another deliberation round from the judges, the 2017-2018 Pioneer Press Eagles Chicks dance team will be announced.
