TYPES OF MEMBERSHIP

TUTU

Our Tutus are the dancers in the krewe. They march in lines, wear the signature Tutu and dance down the streets. They are required to attend a minimum of 8 weekend practices of their choice and 2 mandatory practices in order to dance in the parades.

TIARA

Our Tiaras are our parade support ladies. They get to interact with the crowd, hand out beads during the parade, and act as crowd control. While our Tiaras don't dance, they are an essential part of the krewe and are invited to all krewe events and committees.

TUTU MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS

MISSION

The mission shall be to offer mature women a unique opportunity to join a sisterhood of enthusiastic, inspiring community members, who are accepting of all members, regardless of size, race, religion, sexual preference, or dance ability.

Members are expected to march 5+ miles in parades while wearing knee-high boots, a corset, tutu, and performing the choreographed routines. Be prepared to get into shape!

Put forth 100% effort, energy, and enthusiasm. Remember, the Krewe counts on each member to work together as a team.

Be prepared to attend two additional mandatory practices for Mardi Gras.

Expect practice to start on time. Any announcements will be made at the end of practice.

If you are not on a parade roster, you will not be able to dance the parade. No last minute participation permitted.

​During parades, limit alcohol intake. If any member is too intoxicated to dance, they may be removed from future parade rosters.
