WINTER MARCHING BAND MOVEMENT CLINIC OPPORTUNITY
Join Dr. Elliot Cleveland of Marching Health and Choreographer Michael Rosales for a 2-day winter virtual camp on December 19th and 20th. Dr. Elliot Cleveland worked with our marching band students during virtual mini camp this year, and Michael Rosales worked with students throughout this season. The camp is geared to both instrumentalists and color guard students. They will cover everything from Health/Fitness, Basic Fundamental/Technique and, of course, Performance Skills. The cost for the entire 2-day session is $35. This is a great way to get moving during the winter months, and get ready for next marching band season! Registration and more information available at thebreakdowncamp.com
