HOW TO PREPARE:
It definitely helps that potential candidates have some type of dance or colorguard training prior to auditioning for Chimera Winterguard, HOWEVER... it is not required.
We have built a reputation throughout the southeast on our extensive and high quality training program. We have taken many young spinners and turned them into champions! All it takes is dedication on your part. If you have the desire and the work ethic, we will teach you the rest!
NEVER think you aren't good enough to audition. You just might surprise yourself.
Make sure you practice your fundamentals prior to auditioning (both spinning and release skills).
HYDRATE!!! Please start drinking water or Gatorade in the days PRIOR to coming to auditions. Waiting until the day of is too late!
We will never deny anyone the opportunity to audition or gain experience through the audition process. Having the most talent DOES NOT guarantee admission to Chimera.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Please wear comfortable, form- fitting, ALL - BLACK, dance or athletic wear. (See pictures)
While we do rehearse and perform barefoot, please bring comfortable sneakers or dance shoes.
Hair needs to be pulled back out of your face, and jewelry is not to be worn while rehearsing (stud earrings are acceptable).
WHAT TO BRING:
$50, non-refundable Audition Fee
A great attitude, and all of your passion and desire for performing.
A large water bottle with water or Gatorade. STAY HYDRATED.
