Q: Where and when can I audition for Bluecoats Indoor?
A: At the Bluecoats Indoor Audition Camp, you will not only audition for Bluecoats Indoor’s upcoming season, you will have the opportunity to experience and learn the skills necessary to perform at the highest levels of the winter guard activity in a clinic environment. This camp is open to performers of all ages and skill levels and will be held September 14-15, 2019 at The Recreation Annex at Ivy Tech Noblesville.
Q: How much does the audition camp cost, and what expenses should I expect to cover on my own?

Overnight accommodations are available but you are welcome to find your own place to stay in Indianapolis on Saturday night.

A: Register above! All audition fees are non-refundable.
Q. What will the rehearsal schedule be each weekend?
A: Friday night rehearsals will run from 7pm – 11pm, Saturday rehearsals will run from 9am – 11pm, and Sunday rehearsals will run from 9am – 3:30pm at the audition camp and each rehearsal camp weekend. This is subject to change.
Q. What should I bring with me?
A: While we will provide flags and some additional equipment, you should bring a rifle and/or sabre with you if you plan to audition for a weapon spot.
Q. What should I wear?
A: We request that you wear comfortable, form-fitting dance attire that allows you to move easily while also allowing the staff to see the line of your body during dance. Please dress in layers so that you can remove heavier articles of clothing as your body warms. You may wear dance shoes or dance in your bare feet, but comfortable running shoes (with good support and flexibility) are recommended to be worn throughout the weekend.
Q. What if I can’t make it to the audition camp, but would still like to audition?
A: If you are not able to make it to camp, you can contact us at email@example.com to inquire about submitting an audition video. Attending the camp in person is by far the preferred audition method and is the very best way to demonstrate your skills.
