Drill Team Tryout Information

Mandatory Tryout Meeting

           February 13, 2018 at 6 PM

Marcus High School Main Campus Cafeteria

It’s never too early to begin to prepare for being a member of one of the Marcus High School drill teams. Being a member of the Varsity team (the Marquettes), or the Junior Varsity team (the Silver Stars) is a huge privilege and a role that you will be honored to have if you are selected for the team, but it does take some preparation and discipline. Below are some fundamentals that candidates can expect in our tryout routines.

Tips for Preparing for Tryouts:

  • Our tryout is very heavy on technique, both dance and kick. While studio experience is not a requirement, it will be very helpful to you in the audition.
  • We look for very strong double and triple pirouettes, grande jetes, second leaps, calypsos and high kicks.
  • The Marquettes and Silver Stars are also known for their engaging and entertaining performance quality. Practice your performance as much as you practice your technique.
