INGLEWOOD (CNS) – The Los Angeles Rams will conduct the final auditions for their 2016 cheerleading team today at the Forum.
The final auditions conclude a two-week selection process that included preliminary auditions, professional interviews and dance rehearsals.
The 66 women seeking spots on the team will be judged by a panel of five men and four women, including Pro Football Hall of Fame member Marshall Faulk, who played for the Rams when they were based in St. Louis; Lisa Estrada, the Los Angeles Lakers vice president of entertainment and facilities; and John Peters, the Rams cheer choreographer.
The final Rams Cheerleader team will be announced on stage at the conclusion of the finals. Tickets for the final auditions are $20 and $30 for floor seats and $10 for general admission. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. with the show beginning at 5 p.m.
The process began April 2 when approximately 400 women participated in preliminary auditions at Galen Center, Tiffany White, the Rams communications coordinator, told City News Service.
The Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders were established in 1968. The cheerleaders participate in more than 1,500 hours of community service per year and squad members are featured in the annual Rams Cheerleading Swimsuit Calendar and Rams Cheer Poster, according to Keely Fimbres-Bledsoe, the Rams director of special events and cheerleaders.
