Instructor Clinic in the D.C. area – December 5

| November 9, 2009 | 0 Comments

If you’re going to be in the Washington D.C. region December 5, 2009 (including Northern VA, Maryland, WV, PA…etc.) you might want to check out a super cool clinic being hosted by the Atlantic Indoor Association (and yes… I am the education coordinator so it’s my job to get the word out!).  We’re thrilled to welcome the amazing choreographer, dance professor and long-time colorguard instructor Vincent Thomas along with WGI Movement Judge Warren Rickart who will lead us through a day full of learning about everything related to the movement caption.

Vincent Thomas will lead the event beginning with a morning of hands-on learning, interaction and demonstration touching on conditioning and training, the fundamentals of movement for colorguard (with tips for teaching them to your beginners!), and a combination.  Then Warren Rickart will take over in the afternoon with a discussion on the movement caption, an interactive choreography activity involving both movement and equipment and plenty of time for video review, questions and answers about how a movement judge evaluates your show at the regional A and A class levels.

The clinic is free to AIA member instructors.  For instructors who are non-members the fee is only $25.00.  So – sign up, grab your equipment and head out to Broad Run High School in Ashburn, VA on December 5 (9 – 5) for a great day of learning and networking!  We hope to see you there!  (RSVP to  THANKS!
