2019 Auditions 

December 8th and 9th & January 4th-6th

Auditions will allow our staff to evaluate every prospective member in music, marching, movement, and equipment handling skills. We will also be looking at several additional factors, including positive attitude, work ethic, ability to focus and follow directions ability to learn exercises, and ability to handle constructive criticism in a positive manner.

In addition to an audition in a rehearsal setting, each prospective member will also be interviewed by the appropriate Caption Head.
