Requirements of being a Blue Star
There are six basic requirements:
- Desire - The courage to come to the audition.
- Time - You need to have the ability to attend most winter rehearsals and
all summer performances. You need to be able to move in with the corps on or
near memorial day weekend.
- Finances - Tour Fees, camp fees, and membership fees need to be considered.
How much does it cost to march?
- Attitude - Sometimes drum corps is quite difficult. Your attitude in the face
of stress will be the single most important factor in your success as a member
of the Blue Stars.
- Age - you can audition with the Blue Stars if you are between the
age of fourteen and twenty-one. If you turn 22 on or after June 1st of 2017
you are permitted to march with the corps.
- Health - Daily rehearsals, performances and travel make drum corps
even more intense and demanding than many collegiate level sports. Your body
must be capable of holding up under tremendously stressful physical conditions.
