During the tryouts you will interview with a board of judges consisting of local drill team directors. The judges will ask you about your notebook, ideas, leadership skills, academic success, merits/demerits, as well as other skills like creativity and punctuality. This is a time to show the judges your best efforts through your professionalism, maturity, creativity, and openness to constructive criticism.
Following the interview, Dance officer candidates will be asked to teach a portion of a routine to several of the new "sparks". Following the teaching session, candidates will perform their solo dances for the judges. Finally, all candidates will perform the Officer Strut for the judges. 2020-2021 Officers will be posted on the Sparkler website the Friday after Spring Show.
