The Touch of Gold Twirlers are one of the nation’s elite college twirling lines and are part of the MGF visual pageantry on the field, in the stands, and on stage. Auditions take place each April-May. The postmark deadline for 2018 submissions is March 1. Please see below for more information including audition requirements and materials for future seasons.
Candidates should submit a video or DVD complete with a resumé of the candidate’s twirling experience in order to be considered for membership. There is no required routine, but each candidate should select material that they feel best represents their abilities.
Selected candidates will be invited to a second "live" audition at the Kent State University Field House. Invitation to the second audition is based upon how well each candidate's video demonstrates their potential to twirl at college level in a large stadium atmosphere. Live auditions will be Sunday, April 8, 2018 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Kent State Fieldhouse.
Candidates will receive detailed information regarding their live audition upon selection, but will execute three rounds of material in front of a panel of judges that include:
The second round will be held inside of the Field House on artificial turf. Areas that are considered in judging include:
Twirlers who have previously twirled for the KSUMGF are required to re-audition each year. There is no set number of twirlers and each candidate has equal opportunity for selection.
A Feature Twirler candidate must score significantly higher than all other candidates in all three rounds in addition to executing rudiments in their own Rudiment round.
