Tryout Process
Tryouts are held at McKinney High School and scored by independent judges. The Marquette hopefuls will audition in small groups in front of the panel.  THE JUDGES’ DECISION IS FINAL.

Workshops will be held Monday – Wednesday, March 29th-31st, and are conducted by Mrs. Neely, Mrs. Stephens and Marquette officer candidates. The actual tryout date is Thursday, April 1st. All Marquette hopefuls will go through stretching, basic technique, and routines needed for tryouts. Hopefuls will be judged on their technique and performance of the taught routines. During all workshops the hopefuls are asked to wear clothing appropriate to dance in, and for tryouts the hopefuls are asked to wear all black dancewear and appropriate dance shoes. Please have hair securely tied back in a pony-tail and remove all jewelry.  Each hopeful must wear red lipstick and heavy make-up.
Each hopeful must stay for the entire audition period in order to allow for callbacks.  Auditions are closed: therefore, there will be no spectators allowed.
