The Miami Dolphins are searching for new cheerleaders. For the first time in their 50-year-history, they are looking south of the border to Latin America.

Dorie Grogan, director of entertainment and brand impact for the NFL team, said "We are looking for beautiful women with great personalities and charisma that can cheer our fans."

Auditions for the Latin American cheerleaders will be held in March and April in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico. For those in the US, there will also be auditions in South Florida.

Grogan said that she expects that the team will bring in at least one cheerleader from each of the South American countries, however, she is unsure how many slots are open for them.

Miami Herald reported that the auditions will be held at the JW Marriot Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro on March 3, Sheraton Buenos Aires Hotel and Convention Center on March 6 and the Four Points by Sheraton Bogota Hotel in Colombia on April 2. A yet-to-be-announced location in Mexico City audition will take place on March 12. For the South Florida candidates, auditions will open on April 23 at the Dolphin's training headquarters.

Final auditions are set to be held at Nova Southeastern University on May 1.

While this is a dream come true to aspiring cheerleaders, the team has set forth strict rules for those who plan to audition. All of the candidates must be 18 years old before May 1, and have already graduated from high school before June 1.

Valid passports are also required, as Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders are known to travel a lot. According to CBS, the team has traveled to over 30 countries in five continents in the last decade. They are also noted to be on the sidelines for all Dolphins home games, and are otherwise active in the community.

Those who will be lucky enough to gain a spot on the team's cheerleading squad will have year-long contracts. The Dolphins will also be helping them get the proper work authorization in the United States for them to be able to stay legally during the year.

On their decision to open auditions to Latin Americans, Grogan said, "Miami is the gateway to Latin America and the Miami Dolphins are a global brand. We are excited to combine the beauty we have in South Florida with the ladies we meet in Latin America in hopes of forming a truly international squad."

What do you think of the Miami Dolphins opening their team to hire cheerleaders from South American nations?
