The Kilgore College Rangerettes will announce new freshman members on Friday, July 14, after next week’s pre-training rehearsals.

 

Pre-training rehearsals will take place Monday through Wednesday, July 10-12, in the Deana Bolton-Covin Rangerette Gymnasium on the Kilgore campus.

 

The new Rangerettes will be chosen by outside judges, director Dana Blair and assistant director Shelley Wayne.

 

"Girls trying out will learn various routines during the week such as kick, jazz and studio combinations," Wayne said.

 

Tryouts will be 8 a.m. Thursday, July 13, where the young women will try out in groups of four.

 

New freshmen will be announced at a closed meeting 10 a.m. Friday, July 14, in Dodson Auditorium.

 

Pre-training rehearsals Monday through Wednesday are open to the public but the tryouts on Thursday and the announcement of the new freshmen on Friday are closed to the public.

 

The Rangerettes were the first of their kind when they began in 1940 as a vision of the late Gussie Nell Davis.

 

The organization created a unique combination of dance moves and precision drills that quickly earned them the reputation not only as the originators of dance/drill teams, but as the best in the world.

 

Known for their high kicks and the jump splits, the organization has traveled around the world, entertained millions and spurred a multi-billion-dollar dance/drill team industry worldwide.
