Rehearsals will typically begin on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., and Sunday will run from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
While we will provide flags, you should bring a rifle and/or sabre with you if you plan to audition for a weapon spot. One Light spins 37.5 inch rifle and 39 inch sabre. Bring a water jug or water bottle for breaks.
We request that you wear comfortable, form-fitting dance attire that allows you to move easily while also allowing the staff to see the line of your body during dance. Please dress in layers so that you can remove heavier articles of clothing, as your body warms. You may wear dance shoes or dance in your bare feet, but comfortable running shoes (with good support and flexibility) are recommended to be worn.
One Light has a video audition process for those who are unable to attend. For further information contact One Light at email@example.com
WGI discourages high school winter guard performers from participating in Independent WGI groups. High school students are not eligible to participate in the competitive group if they are already involved in a competitive high school program. All high school students who wish to audition with One Light must have a letter from their school principal releasing them to perform with One Light. The letter must be received by the first rehearsal following auditions.
One Light will contact everyone via email within 5-7 days after auditions.
A fee schedule will be provided to allow members to make incremental payments. All fees are due by January 30, 2023. Please reach out to us through the Contact Us form, if you would like to receive ideas for fundraising your fees.
All rehearsals will be in the Indianapolis Metropolitan Area and surrounding counties.
Exact locations will be provided prior to camps.
One Light will provide snacks for Saturday and Sunday. Member meals are on their own.
During the competitive season, all members should consider housing with other members to keep cost down. No member may stay alone or without other One Light members. One Light has housing during rehearsal weekends for those who are unable to secure other housing or travel. When housing is provided during competitive weekends, all members must stay at the assigned housing site. All members will have a curfew at these housing sites.
Not included in the membership fees: Travel to and from contest/rehearsals, jackets, merchandise booth items, shoes, gloves, make-up, and undergarments needed for performance. Majority of meals will be at the member's own expense.
