    • Upon arrival, please turn off your cell phones and put them away in one of your bags. If it makes any noise (rings/vibrates) and it is heard, you may be asked to leave the auditions due to noncompliance. Cell phones are not allowed at auditions.
    • Please arrive to the audition ready in terms of outfit, no jewelry, hair, and makeup. It is understood that some have come from the prom the day before and may have fake nails. If this is the case, nails will be allowed for auditions on Sunday. However, there will be no special consideration given to those who do have fake nails if there are issues with twirling. Everyone will be scored in the same way. During the regular season, fake nails are not allowed. (Anyone not audition ready will not be allowed to audition and asked to leave.)
