Charmers Auditions:

Auditions for the 2014-2015 Charmers Dance Team will be held on Sunday, April 13, 2014, beginning at 1:00pm in the dance studio (P105) below the Parkland gymnasium in the Dodds Athletic Center.

Dance team candidates will be evaluated on dance technique including a variety of leaps, turns, and toe touches. Candidates will also be evaluated on their ability to learn and execute a short dance routine to include jazz, pom, and hip hop styles.

For auditions, apparel should include black compression shorts or black dance pants, black tank or black-tshirt, jazz shoes, and appropriate tennis shoes for hip hop.

The Parkland Charmers:

The mission of the Parkland Charmers is to serve as a positive ambassador and promoter for Parkland College and Parkland Athletics. Charmers provide entertainment through performances and are strong supporters of their school and community.

The Parkland Charmers Dance Team is comprised of a very dedicated group of ladies who are passionate about dancing. Members of the Charmers have backgrounds and experience levels that vary and typically consist of a mix of studio trained dancers, former cheerleaders, and former high school dance team members.

The Charmers begin practicing 1-2 times per week in the summer in order to prepare for dance camp. In the fall and winter, the Charmers can expect to practice 2-3 times per week. Charmers perform at all home basketball games and attend miscellaneous campus and community events by invitation. In addition to performing jazz, pom, and hip hop style routines at games, the Parkland Charmers also receive the opportunity to compete at Nationals in Florida each year.

Being part of the Charmers is a rewarding experience with many benefits. For additional information, please visit
