Anonymous asked:Is it true that when on tour, you may have to shower with other people? I really want to do dci someday but the thought of that makes me uncomfortable
yes. on tour you spend all of your time with the other members in the corps. including sleeping in gyms of high school and showering in the locker rooms.
girls/boys are obviously segregated for showers, but showering together is a very basic part of drum corps.
at first it is odd or awkward, but the more awkward you make yourself feel the worse it will be. everyone is naked and showering, so all in all it is not a big deal.
Anonymous asked:One of my biggest dreams is to march with the drum corp of my dreams, the only issue is that I ship of in March for bootcamp and I'll be doing a 6 year term with the U.S. Navy. I want to at least audition, but I don't know if I should. Should I audition?
I think that auditioning will be good, because it is always a great experience to at least audition and see what happens.
However, if you are shipping out (thank you for your service also!) then it may be difficult on you if you do get a callback or contract.
However, I think you should go for it so you don’t regret at least trying and getting that little taste of DCI.
Anonymous asked:I have been wanting to join a drum corp. Only problem is I am a woodwind. I have been taking lessons on baritone and have been greatly improving, although I still don't think I am at the world class drum corp level yet. I have been debating if I want to join an open class corp or practice harder and shoot for my dream corp. Any suggestions? (Also, is it possible to audition for 2 corps?)
First of all, congrats for pushing to march and learning a brass instrument! Thats a first great step!
Its always good to go to any auditions!! It will give you tips/advice/etc for improving.
There are pros and cons to either situation:
PROS- Seeing how drum corps life is. Improvement on instrument as well as marching, etc. Staff that can push you to improve. World Class corps take into account that you have previous marching experience
CONS- money that could have been saved to march world class/another season
Practicing At Home:
PROS- Saving money in order to audition/possibly march a world class corps. Improvement.
CONS- Regretting not marching/missing out on the first drum corps experience even in open and that improvement,etc. Less motivation to practice at home sometimes.
It is possible to audition for two corps. I honestly don’t know much more information about this though, if anyone else has something to add feel free to send a message!
Anonymous asked:I want to audition for Spirit of Atlanta this upcoming year, but I hear that they wait a much longer time than other corps to give out contracts. Is this true? I cannot afford to pay for plane tickets once a month without having any idea if I I'll make it or not.
I do not know if this is true.
Submission: I had a goal to march five years but after my first summer with music city im out of money and not able to return
Anonymous asked:I went to Blue Stars audition last Nov. and didn't even get a callback. I worked my ass off practicing and feel discouraged now. I really wanna be a part of DCI, but after my audition I feel lile I'm not talented enough. Any advice?
Keep working, there are still corps now looking for baritone spots (I believe). Even if it may not be your top choice corps.
DO NOT GIVE UP! Keep practicing, working, and everything, and you will be able to reach your goals. :)

You have time! Just keep working and aiming to make yourself better everyday!
And keep your head up, confidence is a huge thing. Hold your head high and do the best you absolutely can. Aim for your goals and you can do whatever you think you can :)
Anonymous asked:Who do you think will take Open Class Champs this year? Be detailed as to why! Thanks!
I honestly have no idea.
I think that it will go to who works and deserves it, as well as show design and everything. But just like World Class.. each corps works extremely hard and no matter placements, I just love to see a great show!
It will be a fun season to watch unfold!
Anonymous asked:What are the easiest places/ways for sexual activities over the summer?
Psssh, honey I was a baby on tour in 2012. -Insert name here- was my seat partner and stuff, but we didn’t do any crazy stuff.
I mean, go ahead and waste your bus sleep time making out or doing whatever, but its not exactly the greatest place to try much else.
finding the money for drum corps can be difficult. help this guy make his dream come true without the worry of money. any amount will help!
