Calgary Stampede Auditions for Drum Group and Dancers/Horse Riders

The Calgary Stampede is auditioning for a drum group and 8 - 10 male or female dancers, 6 of which will require bareback horsemanship skills to be involved in an upcoming Centennial Celebrations show to be held in the Corral during the 10 days of Stampede. All performers must be over the age of 18.

The audition date is Saturday, February 11th from 10 am - 2 pm at the Hebson Indoor Arena, HWY2A and 306 Avenue, Okotoks, AB. Please see the attached notice for further information. The information will be shared with the tipi owners from the Calgary Stampede Indian Village at a meeting on Saturday, January 21.

We are reaching out to the Treaty 7 community to attract as many as possible to the auditions and a once in a life time opportunity to perform at the Calgary Stampede. Those selected will receive financial compensation, and cast housing will be available for anyone that requires to stay in Calgary during the 10 days. If you are selected you must be available for rehearsals from June 19 to July 4th, and for three performances a day throughout the Stampede.

If you require further information, you can contact Deb Howard at 403.971.5045 or by email at [email protected]yahoo.ca.

A synopsis of the show is outlined on the attached Audition Notice.
