Hi! So I'm really interested in auditioning for phantom this year, what should I be expecting for auditions? (dance moves, tosses, etc.) and could you tell me a little bit about how phantom rehearses and such? Thank you!


How auditions usually worked is it’s a full weekend end of November or very beginning of December. On Friday we usually focus all on movement. As you probably know we are heavily movement based so it’s important to feel comfortable with that. We stretch work on some exercises and technique, then usually learn one or two combos that you’ll work on for rest of the weekend.

Saturday, you probably move on to flag and/or weapon block. Either learning some combo, or some technique. It depends on what they are focusing on. You usually work on those combos for the rest of the day.

Saturday night and Sunday morning are usually when they start putting you into small groups to see the combos. It usually about 5 or 6 people to a group. From then on you’ll find out what number you get. 3-they are not offering you a spot or callback. 2-callback to April camp. 1-a contract.

Camp is so much fun and gives you a good taste on what drum corps is like. My first camp, I fell in love with just the whole atheistic of corps. Waking up, length and intensity of block and of course all the people. Some cases it’s not for everyone. But camp really does give you a good idea on what it’s like.

As for how rehearsal are run, really depends on when in the season.
Move ins-typically pretty intense in learning drill and choreography and just learning the entire show.
Tour- there are rehearsal days still which you rehearse all day and there are usually changes in the show. And show days…usually one or two blocks before eat pack load before a show. Sometimes changes are made on show days but nothing too major.

I hope a lot of this helped you. Let me know if you have any more questions!

For anyone interested in being a Phantomettes

When I was 16, I had a fake I.D. and decided to go to a gay bar by myself because some friends bailed on me. While there, an older gentleman bought me a drink. He wasn’t a creeper, and he definitely wasn’t unattractive. I accepted the drink and began talking to him. No big deal. As the hour progressed, I felt myself feeling strange. I mentioned that I felt like I had a headache, and this guy helped guide me out of the bar. As we were walking down the street, the thought of, ‘Oh god, he’s drugged me, I’m going to die’ came to my head. I tried to get away, but I was so drugged up that I could barely walk, let alone speak. It also didn’t help that I had really large ‘goth’ platform shoes because I was going through a phase. Anyway, this guy brought me to his suv and began undressing me. As a final act of defiance, I hit him over the head with my platform shoe. He then punched me, and I remember thinking, ‘Why don’t they ever give workshops to gay guys about being victims of rape too?’ While I was as careful as possible, I never saw the guy slip something in the drink. I even watched the bar tender make the drink. Anyway, I lied there completely paralyzed while this pervert was lubing up. I locked eyes with his for a moment, and that’s when it happened. A very large and angry drag queen opened the door of the vehicle and beat the shit out of my attempted rapist. She and her other drag friends helped dress and care for me while the police arrived. I was saved by a group of guardian drag queens. They were basically the modern day ‘angels from heaven.’










God bless drag queens.

I will always reblog this

Whenever drag queens are present, you best believe they will save the fuckin day.

Oh fuck yes.


If this isn’t on your blog I’m judging you.

Every time a bell rings, a drag queen gets her wings.

God bless drag queen omg
