Shaker Marching Band Raiderettes

The Raiderettes are the marching band's dance team and color guard.  Two mandatory three hour clinics are held in late May, with try-outs to follow.  Raiderettes are expected to attend two weeks of all day camp prior to the start of school, morning  practices from 7:30 am through first period from the beginning of the school year through the end of the football season. The Raiderettes perform at all home and most away football games and the Memorial Day parade.  Prior dance and musical experience is highly recommended.
