Barnstormers Announce Dance and Promo Team Tryouts
Tryout Scheduled for Sunday, December 9 at Wellmark YMCA

DES MOINES – The Iowa Barnstormers will host their annual dance team tryout on Sunday, December 9, 2018 at the Wellmark YMCA on Grand Avenue in downtown Des Moines.

This year, a joint tryout will be held for both the Storm Chasers Dance Team and the Flight Line Promo Team. This audition is open to any female 18 years of age and older who is interested in representing the Iowa Barnstormers both on-field and in the community. The Open Tryout will be held under the direction of Coaches Rebecca “Perry” Perryman (Storm Chasers) and Juli Pettit (Flight Line).

The Storm Chasers Dance Team will perform on the field at every home game both pre-game and at half-time. The Storm Chasers will also lead sideline cheers throughout each and every game. The Flight Line Promo Team assists in cheering on the team and participates in all in-game and on-field promotions throughout each game. Both teams appear at different community events throughout the year.

All participants, for both dance and promo teams, will take part in learning a short sideline pom routine that they will perform in small groups and a brief interview segment. Participants will also be judged on personality, style, and appearance. Those who are interested in the Storm Chasers Dance Team will carry on to learn a one minute choreographed dance routine from Perry which they will then perform in front of a panel of judges.

Participants are encouraged to note if they have interest in both teams.

Check in and registration will open on December 9 at 10:00 a.m. CST with the tryout beginning at 11:00 a.m. CST. All participants will be required to submit a registration payment and sign a waiver and release form. Pre-registration will cost $20 with day-of registration fees increasing to $30 per participant. Pre-registration is now open, forms can be found online and printed from the Iowa Barnstormers website.

Those interested in both teams will only need to complete the Storm Chasers Tryout form.
