What to Expect at Auditions
Open call auditions will be geared toward an intermediate, A Class level, with call backs being geared more toward the separate team expectations.
Bring a water bottle that you can refill and plenty of snacks to get you through the day. There will be short breaks provided and time to rest during group performances.
Flags will be provided, but you should bring your own weapons as there are a limited number of spares available. Everyone should plan to audition on flag, rifle, and dance.
Wear black, form-fitting clothes that allow for movement, comfortability, and focus. You don’t want your clothing to be a distraction to yourself or staff!
Contracts will be sent out within two days of the call back for each team. Those individuals will be provided a member packet and paperwork to complete.
Rehearsals will begin in October for all contracted members.
