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 8-10 performers. If you received a contract or callback in either the November Audition Camp or December Audition Camp, that will be honored for the season. Please see the below document for video audition guidelines. Video auditions are free, but must be submitted NO LATER THAN 6:00PM, APRIL 13, 2019 to receive a callback to Arsenal’s April rehearsal camp. Contracts will not be awarded 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).

Audition Materials Needed

-$25 camp/audition fee (t-shirt and lunch included)
-rifle
-flag
-water jug
-good attitude

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.
