Be The Next Argos Cheerleader


Toronto – The Toronto Argonauts Football Club is getting ready to select its 2010 Argos Cheerleaders, presented by the Toronto Sun, with auditions starting this Saturday.  As part of Toronto’s most exciting and established cheerleading team, you’ll capture the attention of more than 30,000 Argos fans at Rogers Centre and maybe even travel to the Argos home game in Moncton in September, as well as the Grey Cup Championship in Edmonton in November.  This is your opportunity to meet some amazing people, support some meaningful charity events and act as a role model for many young girls by leading the Jr. Argos Cheerleaders.  

This year’s team will be led by new Head Coach Jorie Brown.  A gifted dancer and choreographer, Jorie was an Argos cheerleader from 2002-2005 before joining the Raptors Dance Pak for several seasons.  Trained in all facets of dance, Jorie is currently a VJ on BPM TV, Canada’s first and only dance channel.  She is the host of her own music request show called “Back @ Ya!” that can be seen daily.  Jorie’s true passion, other than cheering on the Double Blue, is her love of teaching.  She is a mentor to over 100 competitive and recreational students at AB Dance in Markham, Ontario. As a teacher and choreographer, the York University graduate has produced many award-winning competitive routines.  

If you are female, 19 years and over, reliable, physically fit with dance, cheer or gymnastics experience and a positive attitude – we want you to try out!  The Argos Cheerleaders have been an integral part of the Argo game day experience for over 30 years and now is your turn to come out and become one of the 33 members of the team.  Those who audition will be evaluated on appearance, dance skills, showmanship and personality.
