The Color Guard Instructor Academy continues to grow and expand its curriculum in 2019! The Color Guard Instructor Academy is perfect for Color Guard instructors at all points in their career. From the beginning instructor to the seasoned veteran who likes to stay current, the Color Guard Instructor Academy gives participants the chance to structure their camp experience based on their individual needs.

Classes will be offered to improve skills in spinning and dancing, to help guide design and management, to refine teaching techniques, and to solidify professionalism. New this year will be an increased involvement with veteran designers and judges in the pageantry arts. Learning from a world class faculty, talking with design experts, and sharing with other participants from around the country will not just allow participants to improve their craft, but to also renew their love of the color guard activity.
