Creating your Video Audition:

Please include everything into a single video instead of sending several links to different videos. It is much easier to send one link with all pieces of your video audition. 

  1. Introduction
    • State your Name, Age, and whether you are interested in auditioning for Fall, Aztec Open Class Winter Guard, Aztec A Class Winter Guard, or all of the above.
    • Then tell us about any experience you may have whether it is a High School color guard, Drum Corps, Independent Winter Guard, Performance Group, Dance Team, etc.
  2. You only need to record yourself from the front for your audition video.
  3. The order of the video should be Introduction, Dance, Flag basics, then Flag Combo. If you are doing weapon you will then include the Rifle Basics then Rifle Combo, followed by Sabre Basics and the Sabre Combo. Remember, only dance and flag are required, rifle and sabre are optional and you do not have to do both weapons. 

Submitting your Video Audition:

  1. Upload the video on Youtube. Title the video “ SDSU Color Guard 2017-2018 Video Audition” Be sure to make the video public so that we will be able to view it with no problems. We are aware that there are other ways to send us your video audition but we prefer everyone to upload it on YouTube and send us the YouTube link to your video audition.
  2. E-mail us the link to your video. Be sure to double check that your video is viewable. Try sending the link to a friend or family member to assure you that the video will be viewable.
