Be a part of the Pride of Acadiana Color Guard!
Auditions & Scholarships
UPDATE: Auditions for the Fall 2019 Pride of Acadiana Color Guard will be held on Saturday, May 4th, starting at 1:00 pm in the Band Room. Please note - returning members of the Pride of Acadiana Color Guard do not need to audition.
Prospective members should be enrolled (or in the process of enrolling) at either UL Lafayette or SLCC. All interested students should register for the audition here.
Equipment will be provided, but you may bring your own if preferred. Wear comfortable clothes. Auditions consist of body/movement and a flag routine. All movement exercises and flag routines are taught at auditions. The audition assesses your skill level and your ability to learn and retain. Results will be given the day of the audition. Those that successfully complete the auditions are members of the color guard.
Guard members are awarded the Service Award of $600 (fall only) OR a Housing Award. Please see the Scholarship Page for more details.
PLEASE NOTE: At this time there are no available spots for feature twirler, but if you are interested in auditioning in the future you are encouraged to contact one of the Marching Band directors.
For those interested in twirling, we have opportunities for feature-level twirlers. We use one to two twirlers, but multiple twirlers do not do synchronized routines. Auditions are held the same day as guard auditions, but private auditions can be scheduled if the audition days are not convenient. A routine should be prepared in advance that showcases your abilities as a feature twirler. Please contact us for additional details. Feature twirlers are awarded the Service Award of $600 (fall only) OR a Housing Award.
