Majorette Auditions

We are excited to announce the 2018 Skyhawk Majorette auditions!  All 2018 Skyhawk Majorettes will receive a Marching Skyhawks scholarship.  In addition, they will be able to work with our championship level instructors throughout the summer and through the fall.  Needless to say, our Skyhawk Majorettes will be amazing in 2018!

To join the group, here is what you need to know:

  1.  Round 1 Audition:  Email a video, preferably via YouTube link, to Dr. Boyd by March 1, of you twirling a routine of your choice.  This could be a routine that you personally write, your instructor writes, or it could be a closeup of you from your fall show while you are performing.  There is no set list of tricks that you need for this video.  All you need is to showcase your best work at your personal skill level.  Our instructors will view all videos to determine if you have the skills necessary to progress to the final audition.
  2. March 7.  Majorettes will be contacted via email to let them know if they are progressing to the next round.
  3. Round 2 Audition, March 24:  Final Majorette auditions take place on the campus of Point University.  Exact times and activities will be email out to those that progress to the final round.
