  • 3-ring binder (1 1/2 inch) and sheet protectors (at least 50)
  • Black Ludwig Strap (Snares and Tenors Only)

Dance Information:

All dancers are required to adhere to the required attire below. Ensure that you have enough clothing to get you through at least one week of rigorous activity. Please make sure that you have adequate shoes for camp (dance sneakers and running sneakers). Even though this is band camp, maintaining a presentable appearance is not an option. Each hairstyle and make-up needs to be kept up throughout a practice day. This is great practice for the upcoming season.


a. Black sports bra

b. Black biker shorts

c. Black leggings

d. Plain white t-shirts

e. Running sneakers

If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me:

Mrs. Krystal Chambers

Flag Information:

Flag members must wear form fitting white tops to all practices. This is to assure that the flag pole does not get caught in your shirt while twirling. Please invest in a quality sports bra and comfortable, supportive athletic shoes to practice in. Color guard/jazz sneakers are not required, but recommended.

If you have not yet become a member of The Sound Machine 2019-2020 facebook page, please request membership ASAP. The staff will be posting very important information through out the summer and we would not want you to miss out on the updates.
