What Will The Staff Be Looking For When I Audition?

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.
  • Commitment to effort.
  • Ability to focus and follow directions.
  • Ability to learn exercises.
  • Ability to process information and instruction.

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