TopCats

Audition Clinics

Registration for the 2014 TopCats audition clinics has ended. Information for next year's audition clinics will be available in early 2015.

Get ready for TopCats auditions by attending the TopCats Audition Clinics. Meet the TopCats staff and learn about the Pride of the Carolinas. Don't miss this opportunity.

While you must be at least 21 years old to audition for the TopCats, anyone 18 or older may participate in the TopCats Audition Clinics. This provides a great opportunity to learn more about the Carolina Panthers cheerleading program and get a head start on auditioning in the future by gaining valuable dance and cheerleading skills from the TopCats.

Clinic participants have the chance to earn a Top Ticket Pass at each clinic based on dance performance. Top Ticket Pass recipients will be exempt from preliminaries and will move straight to semifinals.
