After you fill out the application and click the “submit” button, you will be able to pay your $40 audition fee online. Audition fee pays for both weekends. If you pay at the door, registration is $45. If you are selected for membership, your registration fee will be applied to your dues. All audition fees are non-refundable.

2. If you have your own practice flag, please bring it with you to the audition. If you don’t have your own flag, we will have some extras on hand. If you wish to audition for a rifle and/or sabre spot in the show, you will need to bring your own rifle/sabre.

3. Please bring a sack lunch along with healthy snacks and beverages.

4. Please wear all black form-fitted athletic or dance rehearsal attire that doesn’t restrict your movement. No jeans, baggy clothing, skirts, and hats. Long hair should be pulled up in a ponytail or bun and bangs should be secured back or to the side.

5. At the end of auditions, the staff will meet with participants to let them know their initial results. If a participant is chosen for membership, he/she will receive a 2018 contract, season schedule, and membership forms that will need to be filled out and returned at the first full rehearsal on Sunday, September 23rd along with 1st dues installment (dues for each guard will be included in the membership handbook).

Overall, we think you’ll find auditions to be challenging and fun! It gives the staff the ability to assess your skills and potential. It’s also a great opportunity for you to meet other people from the organization while getting a feel for a typical rehearsal day at Allegiance. You do not need to prepare anything special for auditions, however, you will want to do some stretching and practice your spins and tosses so you’re warmed up for the audition process. Ultimately, if you like to work hard, have fun and LOVE color guard, you are going to do very well at auditions!
