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 bluecoatsindoor@bluecoats.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.
