This weekend was the Winter Guard International world championships. With that ends a season of competition from groups at the middle school level all the way up to adult hyper-athlete. I personally worked with a few groups from Michigan that went to this event, and my home program of Bixby, which spent the season developing skills at home.
Dance is a different kind of art. It often relies on other arts to support it, namely music. Without music, dance is a challenge. A silent dance is awkward to the uneducated viewer. Additionally, costuming helps convey character. props convey setting. Eventually you can combine enough mediums and dance is the protagonist to a full-blown story.
Wonderheim looks to embark deeper into the art of dance soon. Stay tuned over the next couple weeks!
