Titans hunt for new movers


The Titans are recruiting new squad members.

You don’t have to know how to play footy but you do have to be fit and flexible.

The football season might be over for the Titans but not for the Titanettes, the club’s cheerleaders.

This sunday, budding cheerleaders from the ages of six onwards are encouraged to come down to the Ikin Dance Studio at the Gold Coast and audition.

Angela Belford, Titanette: “Just doing the stunting and the acrobatics and all those new skills, and the best part about being a Titanette is going out on that field and performing in front of thousands of people.”

Nicole Courtie is a current Titanette. She’s getting ready to perform at the Sport Aerobic World Championships in the Netherlands.

Nicole Courtie, Titanette: “I’m so excited about the championships, I’ve been counting down the days for a good month now.”

Cheerleaders are an important part of the football team, helping keep the crowds on their toes.

Reg Prasad, Titans Production Manager: “They have fun, and if they’re having fun it means everyone else in the stands are having fun, so it’s really important.”

But the most important thing, they must know how to move.

Cheerleaders perform amazing stunts infront of huge stadium crowds. One thing I’ve learnt though is that it’s not as easy as it seems.
