Overall, we think you’ll find auditions to be challenging and fun! It gives the staff 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!
