Hi! My name is Jade Gonzalez and this is my first year as a Washington Redskins Cheerleader! I started my journey with the First Ladies of Football two years ago when I submitted my application for the first Washington Redskins Training Program. I had heard about Sideline Prep, so I decided to take their Workshop where I was able to learn choreography from the Washington Redskins, Washington Wizards, and the Baltimore Blast Cheerleaders! This workshop held by Sideline Prep was so beneficial as I was able to speak one on one with the Directors as well as current and past cheerleaders. Day two of the workshop was a mock audition where I received one on one feedback from each cheerleading team. Having never auditioned before, I was so thrilled to be able to get the chance to see what areas I needed to improve on and receive positive feedback as well.
I decided I wanted to work with Sideline Prep another year to truly prepare myself for auditions. I was a member of the Washington Redskins Training Program for another year and worked very closely with Sideline Prep’s coaches GeNienne & Jeanette! The different training sessions they held were amazing because it was tailored specifically to me! They helped me with my dance, makeup, interview skills, and fitness. I audition for the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders this past April and made the team my first try!! YAY!
I honestly don’t know what I would have done without Sideline Prep. Sideline Prep motivates you and is always there when you have questions or you just need a friend. Never say no to your dream. Work hard and I promise you, it will pay off! The most important lesson I learned with Sideline Prep is to always give 110%! This means giving 110% into your preparation as well, not just the actual auditions! So if you want to feel prepared and confident, work with Sideline Prep!
