World Class

Scholastic World

Scholastic World guard members will range in age from 14-18 years.  Many time they are the upperclassmen of their school including the most experienced performers.  In these cases we will notice more similarities in skill-set from member to member.

Because most of these performer have been together for the duration of their high school years, we see more advanced skills throughout these programs in both equipment and movement.  We also notice that skills are connected in more complex ways over longer periods of time.

More performance experience and training make choreographic and design options in this class greater than the other scholastic classes.  As a result, expect stronger stylistic identities with a wider range of approaches.  This variety can make comparisons in this class more challenging.

These guards have strong defined personalities and are highly creative and unique.  Programs are designed to showcase their impressive body and equipment talent.  Their depth of training and skills are strong and push the limits of the top of the scholastic classes as this class strives to set new standards.

Independent World

Since the removal of the maximum age in the Independent World Class, these groups have elevated the degree of difficulty in the blend of equipment and body set in innovative programs that explore the abstracts as well as the literal story of their creations.

This class contains the legacy color guards where creative and technical staffs, and in multiple cases membership, have been together for many years.  These years are spent developing and perfecting very specific processes, leading to extended repertoire of skills and hyper-stylized approaches.  These compositional and choreographic fingerprints lead to the strong creative identities delivering us the widest variety from unit to unit, creating the crown jewels of the activity.
