If you are interested in becoming a Sea Gal you should begin preparing for auditions now. Auditions begin in mid to late April with finals in early May. We are looking for talented beautiful women who are dancers and in good physical condition. I suggest working on your fitness level and your dance skills (take a variety of dance classes).

It is also important to work on your appearance such as learning how to apply glamorous make-up and a classy hair style that works for you. Sea Gals range in age, body type, height, hair color, etc. but they must be in top form. If you come to auditions knowing that you are completely “together” your confidence will shine through. Plan to come to at least one of the pre-audition workshops. These workshops offer valuable help in preparing for auditions. Dates and locations will be posted on Seagals.com soon.

Common questions
The commitment is strict but doable. Orientation is usually about 2 weeks after finals followed by practices on every Tuesday and Thursday evening throughout the summer until the end of the season. You must be available for ALL home games. We do not travel to away games. I usually give the week of July 4th off. Additionally there is a Saturday, Sunday workshop the first week of June. The Sea Gals also do about 300 public appearances each year but that is optional with some Sea Gals doing many of them while others do just a few. You are paid for EVERYTHING you do as a Sea Gal. Many Sea Gals go to school or have full time careers or both.

How many we take ranges from 24 – 32 depending on the competition? All Sea Gals (current or former) must audition each year. Current Sea Gals join in on the finals round but it is rare that they all make it back on the team. So how many spots are open?....24-32.

There is no specific dance requirement however most do have fairly intense dance backgrounds. Some are able to make it from strong gymnastic, cheerleader or hip-hop training. It is worth your while to take some dance classes such as jazz and technique with turns, leaps, etc. over the next couple of months.

There is no general weight or height requirement. It is important that each Sea Gal is in the best shape for her body type.

Tattoos and piercings may not be visible. You need to cover all tattoos and remove all piercings with the exception of simple ear piercings.

Why be a Sea Gal? Being a Sea Gal is hard work but so rewarding. You are part of a team committed to each other, the Sea Gal program and to the community. Sea Gals experience personal growth in ways you can only imagine. We work on dance, appearance, speaking, and beauty inside and out and most importantly you will learn to be confident and yet remain humble. Sea Gals have the opportunity to help those in need in our community, mentor kids through our Junior Sea Gal program, visit and perform for military troops and list goes on and on.

See you at auditions!
