2018 Okanagan Military Tattoo Highland Dance Team

Written by IT Communications

Calling all Premier Highland Dancers!

Auditions are now open for the 2018 Okanagan Military Tattoo Highland Dance Team. Those interested in applying must be Premier level Highland dancers.

There will be 3 Tattoo performances; a full dress rehearsal for an audience, an evening show on July 28th, and an afternoon show on July 29th. (Dancers must be available to perform each day in Vernon BC.)

All dancers are expected to be in attendance for rehearsals; the evening of the 26st, day and evening of the 27th, and morning of the 28th in Vernon BC.

A schedule for practices will be distributed upon acceptance, to the Kamloops dancers. These rehearsals are all mandatory for dancers from Kamloops, and will be held in Kamloops. All out of town dancers are always welcome to attend any practices held in Kamloops.

Dancers from outside the Kamloops area are greatly encouraged to apply, we are hoping for a large group of out of area dancers to join us. We will be sharing videos of steps that you will be expected to learn via a closed FB Group before our rehearsals in Vernon.

Paid accommodation for all accepted dancers is provided by the OMT for anyone living outside of Vernon BC.
All Performers will get all meals provided plus attendance to the performers party on the Saturday evening.

To audition, please fill out the application form here:

All applications must be received by April 8th, 2018 at midnight.
