Colorguard


Twirler


The colorguard is an important part of the pageantry and visual presentation of the Marching Jayhawks, and we welcome anyone interested to come check us out! Since we do perform multiple shows each season, we do require that all potential colorguard members have prior experience.

Our colorguard instructor is Mrs. Melissa Smith. If you have further questions, please contact her at mmbbsmith@gmail.com.

We will hold two audition dates for prospective colorguard members in summer 2014. These auditions provide an excellent opportunity for potential students to meet our instructor and guard captains, work on unifying our techniques, and getting a head start on some of our traditional routines and techniques.

2014 KU Colorguard Auditions

Saturday, June 28 from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Saturday, August 2 from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Auditions will be held at Murphy Hall on the KU campus. Please email Mrs. Smith mmbbsmith@gmail.com if you plan to audition, and fill out the Prospective Member Form. You only need to come to one audition date.

Connect with the KU Colorguard on Facebook.

Twirler

We will not have an opening for the twirler position for the 2014 season. There will be an audition date for the 2015 season in early spring; this will be announced in the fall of 2014.
