Join The Cherry Bombs!

New members join by auditioning for the group. We typically have auditions every 2 years, generally after the Mardi Gras season. Dance experience is helpful, but not required! We do not accept video audition submissions if someone cannot make the audition in person. All candidates must be 21+. If you are interested in auditioning, please fill out this form to be added to our Interest List. We will email you when we have our next round of auditions.


Audition applications for our 2024 auditions are now closed. 

Membership Requirements

The main "it factor" needed is a love for dance, for supporting other human beings, and for the people and culture of New Orleans. We are a dance focused group, and we have at least one practice a week — more when we are preparing for dance performances and parades — so there must be room in your life for that. We practice hard both because we LOVE to dance and so we can bring our best for our events. We are a small group committed to connection and a culture of support and non-discrimination. All members also have responsibilities to keep the group running and thriving, beyond just dancing and membership. If you love dance but also love to work and play hard, then the cherries could be a great fit for you! All of our members must be 21+.

Join the Bomb Squad

Our beloved support squad is called “The Bomb Squad,” and we are always looking for enthusiastic folks to join our Cherry family as Squad members! The job is simple and fabulous — walk alongside us during the parades and keep us both safe and hydrated. This is a great way to get to know the Cherries (especially if you would like to audition in the future!). Bomb Squad members must be 21+.

Perks include:

  • Joining the Cherries during parades!

  • A special Bomb Squad T-Shirt

  • The opportunity to perform a super fun Bomb Squad dance during parades
    (if you decide to opt in!)

  • Bomb Squad appreciation events throughout the year
