The Montreal Alouettes cheerleading team was formed in 1996 and the cheerleaders have been cheering on the team and entertaining fans for 18 years now. The 32 women on the team, ranging in age from 18-30, were carefully chosen from a group of 150 hopeful candidates who showed up at this year’s try-outs. They were selected based on their talent, experience, rhythm, outgoing personalities and dynamism.
The Montreal Alouettes cheerleaders manage their time between school or work, practices, games, promotional activities and their families. Their careers vary from engineer, high-school teacher and graphic designer, to dance teacher, specialised educator, psychology student and full time mom!
Directed by Annie Larouche, the cheerleaders practice 2 nights a week, from the beginning of March to the end of December. They take part in every home game where they perform nearly 10 numbers as well as conceiving half-time shows for some of the home games. The Cheerleaders are highly involved in the community taking part in promotional or charity events.
They are proud to be representing their team and their city and to be a part of the Montreal Alouettes, the 2010 Grey Cup Champions!
