Los Angeles Charger Girls, one of America’s top professional dance and cheerleading teams, unveiled the 28 members of its 2017-18 dance squad.

With hundreds of talented hopefuls originally auditioning on May 6 at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion, the 28 members of this year’s team were selected from a group of 65 finalists who completed a five-day audition process that culminated with panel interviews and a final dance routine on May 11 at The Novo at LA Live.

“The pool of talent auditioning for this year’s team was both deep and impressive,” said Charger Girls Director Lisa Simmons. “Los Angeles draws an incredible amount of talented dancers and performers with exceptional backgrounds and extensive experience working in this industry. We had to make some tough decisions in narrowing the field to the final 28. This level of competition has helped ensure that we’ll have one of our finest squads ever.”

Given the Charger Girls’ history of serving as ambassadors for the organization both nationally and abroad, with international trips that have included Australia, Germany, Mexico, Guam and Japan among other destinations, dancers from around the world showed up for preliminary auditions.

The 2017-18 Charger Girls are comprised of women who range in age from 19 to 36 from a variety of backgrounds, including one dancer from Taipei, Taiwan. With nine returning veterans and 19 first-time Charger Girls, the group features a real estate professional, an actor, an events manager and students from Cal State Long Beach, Azusa Pacific University and Cal State Fullerton.
