2019 Cast Member Auditions

Sunday, September 16th is the first round of auditions for the 2019 season. All LEVELS (excluding MINIS) must attend this date*. The first round of auditions will be held at Evergreen High School (29300 Buffalo Park Rd, Evergreen, CO 80439) from 11am-6pm. There will be call back auditions on September 22nd & 23rd for the world team and on the 30th for our A team.  Please follow our Facebook page for updates and information!

Our MINIS team will be having rehearsals on 9/23, 10/7, and 10/21 from 1-4pm at Arvada High School for anyone who is interested in spinning with this team. The members who are spinning with this level do NOT need to pay an audition fee and are encouraged to only attend the MINIS rehearsals and not participate in the large format auditions for the more experienced members. If you have a kiddo that would like to audition for our MIRA level team please reach out to Lindsay Thomas and Corinne Greenrod to discuss the best options so everyone has a great experience.

*MIRA will have open auditions until October and members will be accepted throughout the audition process and the month of October but attendance is highly recommended from the onset of the audition process.

Note: Audition dates are for RA, A, and World Teams.  Potential members for our Minis team  need not audition but must be under 14 years of age and begin attending rehearsals in October.  Our Minis team is holding OPEN and FREE rehearsals all summer long.  Please email spin@malachiwinterguard.org for questions specific to the Mini Team, attention Lindsay Thomas. 

Do you live outside of the Denver area?  Most of our members live within driving distance of the Metro area, but some live as far as Fort Collins and Colorado Springs. Overnight housing and carpooling can usually be arranged for those with long commutes. Please send us an email at spin@malachiwinterguard.org to help make this happen for you.

Auditon Tip #1: Like our Facebook page and ask to join the 2019 Member Group to stay in the loop, gain helpful information for auditioning, and learn about fundraising options.

Audition Tip #2: Attend our summer dance classes and spin camps to acquire knowledge and skills to have a successful audition.

Audition Tip #3: Don’t be afraid to reach out to staff with questions, concerns, or audition conflicts! You will be most successful with less to worry about at auditions. Please get in touch with us by sending an email to spin@malachiwinterguard.org.


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.
