Welcome to the Chops Winterguard auditions! These are really more like a vibe check — we are determined to provide training to anyone interested, whether you're brand new or a seasoned veteran. Whatever equipment you're interested iin improving on, we'll help you get there, and it'll (probably) be fun too!

However, you *must* register on eventbrite first!

We'll have tryouts Saturday and Sunday, fell free to choose the best day for you!

We recommend bringing dance & tennis shoes, although socks & bare feet are allowed. If you aren't interested in marching on sabre, you'll continue to work on movement with our dance tech during the sabre block.

Dues for the entire season are $250 total, with payment plans and scholarships available.
