2021 Texas Collegiate Twirler Audition Guide

Hello Texas Twirl Fans!

Welcome to the fifth year we are offering this very special feature for the Twirling is Catching Blog! We know senior year is an exciting time for many twirlers, but it is also a little nerve wracking as twirlers try to decide which University to select. While this is already a hard decision, when you have a dream of twirling on the collegiate level, it adds an additional level of pressure for picking the right place. There are also many current college students that may be deciding between auditioning at their school or other schools. So many choices! Our goal with this feature is to present as much audition information for Texas universities in one place as possible to at least make the process of knowing how to audition easier for our collegiate twirler hopefuls.

If you have any info to update any of these listings, or for a University not listed, please email We will be posting updates as new details become available. You can also check out the Texas Collegiate Feature Twirler & Texas Collegiate Line Twirlers pages at for more info on each of these programs.

We will also announce many of the Twirler selections for these Universities as the decisions are made, so stay tuned! You can always follow us here, but make sure to also like and follow us at, and Instagram account @twirlingiscatchingtx.
