A Wrangler Belle candidate first and foremost must show a passion for dance in her presence and attitude. A Belle should have a teamwork attitude and be willing to make decisions and sacrifices for the betterment of the Wrangler Belle Dance/Drill Team. Our team expects and nourishes a work ethic that a Belle will carry out into the real world after college. Of course the Belles want great dancers, but it is the focus of our team to become better people as we dance and move through this journey of dance and life. We are so excited that you have taken the first step to becoming a Wrangler Belle. Thank you for visiting our audition page and we look forward to meeting you in the near future. Good Luck and never Stop Dancing!

Wrangler Belle auditions are held each year during the early spring and early summer. We offer two different ways to audition for our team. The first one is a basic one-day audition that is typically called "Senior Day". Senior Days are normally set during the spring semester on a Monday to accommodate candidates that need to travel. At this audition, you will have the opportunity to tour the campus, visit with financial aide, counselors, and participate in a Question/Answer session with the director personally before the audition that normally takes place after lunch. During this particular audition, you will need to bring a dance of your own that high lights your strengths as a dancer. This dance will be performed in front of the director and two other judges that will be present. The candidate will also learn a dance along with demonstrating technical skills in a technique type class. The second way to audition is by submitting a video. This form of audition is discouraged unless you are from out-of-state or you have unusual circumstances. All video submissions must be discussed with the director for approval.
