2019 GUARD INFORMATION

Thank you for your interest in joining the 2019 Arsenal!

2019 marks our second season fielding a color guard, and we’re excited to announce that our goal for this season is to field a total of 20 performers. This season, guard members will audition on a rolling basis via video auditions so as not to conflict with WGI rehearsals and competitions. Color guard students who submit video auditions before December 30th will be invited to the January Camp, and students who submit videos before April 13th will be invited to the April Camp. Please see the below document for video audition guidelines. Video auditions are free, but must be submitted in a timely manner in order to receive a callback to one of Arsenal’s rehearsal camps. Contracts will not be rewarded on the basis of video auditions alone- potential members must attend at least one camp to secure a contract, except for extenuating circumstances wherein camp attendance is impossible (eg, international students).

All color guard auditionees are asked to bring their own equipment, if possible. Arsenal has a limited number of flags available, and so we ask that all color guard attendees bring their own. Students interested in the weapon line should plan to bring a rifle and/or saber as well. Students will be expected to wear all black dance attire that allows maximum flexibility and comfort. Dance shoes are optional.

Please be sure to inform staff of any pre-existing injuries such as knees, lower back, etc.
