Clubs and Teams

Technical Drill
The Technical Drill Routine is the medium used by DrillDance teams to display marching drills, movements and formations within specified rules. The routine should demonstrate the spectacle of good team work, discipline, accuracy of drill standards as well as the dignity and deportment of traditional marching.

Exhibition Drill
The Exhibition Drill Routine is the medium used by DrillDance teams to add their own choreography to a traditional marching routine. This routine includes set compulsories and a combination of intricate formations, clever team work and the overall impression of precision.

Thematic Drill
The Thematic Drill routine provides the opportunity for Intermediate and Senior teams to be creative whilst still within the realm of a drill type performance.  Teams use a combination of marching skills ( which may be in theme), and may add thematic movements, music, costume and choreography in the routine in keeping with the characteristics of the chosen theme being portrayed. 

Rhythmic Drill

The Rhythmic Drill provides an opportunity for Master and Junior teams to be creative still within the realm of a drill type performance. The emphasis of this routine should be on Marching skills. Teams may show versatility using rhythmic movements, a variety of patterns (formations), movements, steps and drills.

Prop DrillDance
Prop DrillDance is the medium for teams to be creative within the realm of a drill / dance / rhythmic type routine with the emphasis being on the skillful use of props and precision in movement, performed to music of the team’s choice.

Thematic Dance
DrillDance comes alive as teams dazzle you with routines using their favourite music or theme. Members become R&B dancers, rock’n’rollers and story characters as they perform entertaining movements to great music. The Thematic Dance Routine is a performance where teams choose their own interpretation of a story, theme, dance or pantomime.
