We have a very important VISUAL week and Saturday rehearsal from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. as we start drill for the closer. All marchers must have a dot book and pencil at all rehearsals. Hydrate the day before, eat breakfast & lunch, and always have proper rehearsal attire.
AFTER SCHOOL REHEARSALS
Rehearsals comprise the majority of your student's grade and attendance is crucial to the success of the entire group. Arrive EARLY with your water, equipment, dot book, and pencil, wearing athletic attire, a hat, and athletic shoes.
The entire Gahr Marching Gladiators must wear a white t-shirt on Tuesday night rehearsals. This is necessary for the staff to set forms more quickly. The shirt can be plain white or mostly white.
