2020-2021 Virtual Auditions

DREAM IT. DO IT.

You will never know unless you try! Join our virtual auditions for the casting of the 2021 Pride of Cincinnati Virtual Season. REGISTER HERE!

HOW IT WORKS

After you register for the audition you will be invited to a private “2021 Pride of Cincinnati Auditions” Facebook group.

A link will be provided to submit your audition application paperwork.

Links to choreography combination videos will be shared in the Facebook group Saturday morning October 17th. Videos will include a movement piece (everyone is required to learn and submit the movement piece) as well as optional flag, rifle and sabre combinations (learn if you wish to be considered for those pieces of equipment.)

Rehearse and record your audition videos and submit them back to the Pride staff via unlisted YouTube links – no later than 12PM (ET) Saturday, October 24th.

Pride staff will review your videos and email back educational feedback, or an invitation to a “LIVE ZOOM CALLBACK” to be scheduled on November 1st.

Audition fee is $30 per person. REGISTER HERE!
