3-DAY Audition Camps in Atlanta

Come​ ​to​ ​the​ ​audition​ ​prepared​ ​to​ ​rehearse!  Be sure you have completed steps 1, 2, and 3 below before arriving

Battery and Brass will work on music and visual. Guard will work on movement and equipment.

Participants can expect to have an individual audition with Spirit staff, but it is important to remember that everyone will be evaluated from the moment they walk into the room.  Everything that you do will be taken into consideration.

Parents are welcome to watch any (or all) of the rehearsal, but they are not required (or expected) to stay.  If you are interested in volunteering to help out, please complete this Volunteer Interest Form.  There will be a parents information meeting Sunday before the end of camp.  We encourage all parents who have questions or wish to know more about Spirit of Atlanta to attend.

1 – Auditions RSVP:

It is important that everyone who will attend submits an RSVP form.  This helps us prepare the facilities, meals, transportation needs, etc.  Please complete this form immediately online at www.spiritdrumcorps.org/rsvp

Airport​ ​Shuttles:

If you are flying to camp and need a ride to or from the airport, you must fill out a Shuttle Request sections of the RSVP form and we will schedule a ride for you.  There is no charge for the shuttle.

All airport shuttles will be picked up at door S2, Directly below Delta Baggage Claim 5. If you are arriving with a long wait between landing and your scheduled shuttle pick up time, we recommend looking for other Spirit Auditionees who tend to congregate at the iHop Express between the North and South Baggage Claim areas.

2 – Official Participant Handbook:

This is a very important document that EVERYONE attending must read thoroughly.  It outlines all of the policies and procedures of Spirit of Atlanta and our parent organization Spirit of Atlanta Inc.  You must download the Participant Handbook before attending camp, and it contains a link to submit your acknowledgement of agreement (signature) to the terms included.  If a participant is under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must submit a version of this form in addition to the member.  www.spiritdrumcorps.org/handbook

3 – Medical Forms and Waivers:

Everyone who attends must create an account at DragonflyMAX – the free app that manages all of our medical forms and information.  Before you arrive for camp, please create your account and complete the forms by following these instructions:  www.spiritdrumcorps.org/dragonflymax

Parking and Directions:

Note: If you are using a GPS, make sure to enter the address:  603 Walker Dr., Locust Grove, GA 30248.  If you type “Luella High School”, Google Maps will take you to the back of the school.  There is a map below of the school site with indicators of where to park.

Check In:

Check in begins at 5:30pm and you may check in any time after that.  You are NOT required to be there exactly at 5:30pm.  The first meetings and rehearsal time start around 7:00pm.  It is important that you do not arrive at the school before 5:30pm, as there are still school functions happening, and you will not be permitted inside.

When you arrive at Luella please park in the lot marked in Green on the map and enter through the door indicated in Orange.  As you enter through the indicated entrance you will see classroom 702 ahead on your left. Drop your luggage in this room and proceed to Check-In Station One.

At Check-In Station One we will verify you have arrived and let you know what paperwork you may be missing.  To make your Check-In Process easier, please complete your Participant Handbook and Medical Release Form prior to arriving.  If you are under 18, we will expect two copies of the Handbook and Medical Release Form to be submitted (one submitted by the participant, one submitted by a parent or guardian).

All auditionees will be given a T-Shirt to wear for the duration of the weekend. Because you will be wearing the same T-Shirt all weekend we highly recommend bringing clothing you can wear underneath to keep it clean. If you receive a contract or a callback, you will be expected to bring this shirt to the next audition or camp you attend.

The final step in the check-in process will be to stop by the Wristband Table to receive your Wristband. Auditionees will only receive a wristband if they have completed all of the check-in process.

Meals:

We will provide all of your meals during the camp.
