What should be included in my video submission?

VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS
Please provide YouTube links to all material in a clear and concise video format where the dancer’s full body can be seen in the frame.

Videos should be head on and filmed horizontally, as if the dancer is facing the coaching staff. Please have someone follow you with the camera for movement in technique/tumbling videos to prevent being cut out of a still frame or being too far away from the camera. Dancer’s feet should be visible in videos at all times.

Video 1: Intro Video & Skills Check

Please wear crop top of your choice and either hot shorts or leggings during this portion

Intro Video:
– Your full name
– Where you’re from
– Age
– High school or college attended
– One fun fact
– Intro should be personable and fluid. Relax and be yourself!

Skills Check:
– As many turns as you can do
– A la seconde sequence of choice
– Leg extension of choice
– Left and right aerial
– Any tumbling or tumbling pass you may have

Video 2: Dance Combos

– 30-second jazz combo of choice

Will every dancer who submits an application get a response?

Yes! We will check submissions often and will respond to every interested dancer. Please allow two (2) weeks from your submission to respond.

Is attending a Training Clinic mandatory?

No. Training Clinics are optional, however, these are highly recommended and the best way to learn about the Tiger Girls and for the coaching staff to see you in person.

Along with danceability, what do you look for in potential dancers?

The LSU Tiger Girls are looking for committed team members who exemplify athleticism through their skill level, fitness, health, and work ethic. Our team is continuously in the public eye and is expected to represent LSU by maintaining an athletic/professional image and good academic standing.

What is the best way to form a relationship with the coaching staff?

Along with attending Training Camps/Clinics, prospective team members are encouraged to communicate with the coaching staff via email. Be on the lookout and introduce yourself to LSU Tiger Girls coaches who attend recruiting events throughout the season.

Follow @LSUTigerGirls on social media to keep up with the team.
