A London based, 3D comedy dance film that will hit

  1. Sorry, just a quick question if you don't mind.
    It says that they are looking for "ACTORS, DANCERS, GYMNASTS, CHEERLEADERS…OR PEOPLE THAT CAN DO ALL FOUR!" but then says that you have to do 60 - 90 seconds freestyle.
    Because it says bring music of your choice, I take it that it is a dance that you have to freestyle?
    So does that mean that if you just act and can't dance, then you shouldn't attend?

    Sorry for this, but if you do know the answer then thank you. If not then, thanks anyway. =]

  2. If you can't do a dance/gymnastics/cheerleader routine as requested then it's probably not worth attending...

  3. so you can't just go there to act not even as an extra or something as not everyone in the flim is going to be able to dance?

  4. This isn't a casting call for extras.

  5. The Cheerleaders 3D film is currently on hold as the deal for the film with Universal Studios broke down.

    The production team were devastated as they have been working on it since early October and have auditioned 500 people so far.

    They are now approaching Paramount who were also interested so it may mean that everything picks back up in the next couple of months.

    The production team are confident that the film will get made eventually, and when it does the initial cheer auditions and readings will still stand.
