Camp Dates: Highly advised to attend!!!

There will be 2 experience camps held prior to auditions. There is no cost to attend these camps.  We will provide flag equipment for you use during these experience camps.  The camp will meet briefly at Simon Estes Music Hall before spreading out to a variety of locations, based on the weather.  Please wear weather approriate clothing for Iowa summers, and it is recommended that you bring a water bottle to have (there are filling stations in the music building).

It is recommended to attend as many of the camps as you can, but if you are unable to do so, please review the exercises below and contact Theresa McLeod-Hughes.

The experience camps are on the following days:

  • July 22, 2023 1-5pm
