It's not as simple as showing up one day, learning a routine and performing for a panel of judges to make one of the league's most storied cheerleading teams. Following multiple voluntary prep classes over the last few weeks, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders held their open call auditions this past weekend and from nearly 100 hopefuls, 49 will be going into this Saturday's final audition showcase.

The reason it's called a showcase and not just final auditions? That's because it's open to the public. The showcase will take place at AdventHealth Training Center inside the Buccaneers' indoor facility this Saturday, April 6. It's a great opportunity to see dreams become a reality after often a lifetime of dancing and dedication.

Bucs Cheer has been at the forefront of cheerleading initiatives and introduced new uniforms last season that are the first of their kind for any NFL club. Instead of the more traditional primary uniform of top and skirt, Bucs cheerleaders rocked leggings and sneakers, which are more conducive to the movements included in their choreography. They allow cheerleaders to be the athletes that they are and were designed with input from Buccaneers Owner and President of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation and Glazer Family Foundation, Darcie Glazer Kassewitz.

As to who will be wearing those uniforms in 2019, that's yet to be determined. To get your first look at the 2019 team well in advance of the season, the final audition showcase starts at 1 p.m. on April 6 with doors opening at 12:30 p.m. Admission is free!
