After things got started, Jills choreographer Kelli Wagner of Fusion Dance Studio introduced the Jills captains who then put on a performance before all the girls trying out paraded across the stage to introduce themselves to the judges and the fans. The captains then returned to the stage to show off the tryout routine to everyone in attendance.
Following that, tryouts progressed pretty quickly. Dancers came out in pairs, introduced themselves and performed to one of three songs. Ambassadors came out in groups of 3 and, after introducing themselves, drew a question for Kelli, acting as emcee for the event, to ask them.

After everyone tried out, they came back on stage in swimsuits to show off their physiques. With calendar shoots coming up next month, everyone needs to be in their best shape and can't wait to get in shape over the summer. Plus the swimsuit modeling gives the girls a chance to show how confidant they are in front of a crowd. Each girl came on stage while Kelli read off a bio card for each girl that they filled out themselves. Some were serious and some, like Jaclyn's, mixed in a bit of humor when she mentioned she liked short skips along the beach while Nicole said long walks. After reading Nicole's bio card, Kelli commented that she and Jaclyn must hang out together. In truth, Jaclyn was talking while working on her bio card about putting that on her card while someone else would mention the long walks.

Congratulations to all those who made it through 1st cuts and best of luck the rest of the week! See the complete list at http://buffalojills.com/news_story.php?ID=8
More than that though, congratulations to all those who even just tried out. It's not easy putting yourself out there like that. There's a lot of girls who want to get on the sidelines in the NFL that won't even try. If you missed the cut, don't let it get you down. There are several girls who have made the Jills who missed it their first tries. There may even end up being a number of rookies this year who missed it before. So keep working at it and give it a shot again next year!
