Registration and sign-in will take place between 5-6 p.m. on Friday at a location to be determined in the near future, immediately followed by auditions. No cuts will be made following Friday’s audition. Saturday’s session will consist of the dancers performing the routine learned the prior evening before a panel of judges, and will be evaluated on dance technique, showmanship, appearance, and physical fitness.

To register, log on to idahostampede.com to print out the registration form, visit the Idaho Stampede front office (233 S.

Potential candidates must be at least 18-years-old and be a high school graduate. In addition to a physical and personal appearance evaluation, candidates will be judged on their ability to grasp choreographed dance routines, maintain a positive attitude and communicate effectively.
