Drill Team Tryout Information

Mandatory Tryout Meeting

February 11th at 6pm

Marcus High School Main Campus Cafeteria
It’s never too early to begin to prepare for being a member of the Marcus High School Drill Team. Being a member of this Varsity team, the Marquettes, 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 are also known for their engaging and entertaining performance quality. Practice your performance as much as you practice your technique.
