Spirit U early deadline approaching

The deadline for the early registration discount for Spirit U is quickly approaching! Register before May 14th for the only summer band camp in Atlanta area where you can experience what it is like to be in a DCI World Class corps. After May 14th, full-price registration will be $295. Calling all students, band directors, parents, boosters, or anyone who participates with a marching band and/or drum corps program who have a hankering to learn more.

For band directors, band boosters, parents, and volunteers; Spirit U is similar to a one-day symposium. Those participants can expect to have a day of informative education sessions about how your program can grow and thrive. Featured topics have included the role of marching bands, legal issues facing programs, health and conditioning, integration of electronics in a successful program design, fundraising, and recruiting – just to name a few. The cost of the one-day experience is $125.

For students (aged 12-18), Spirit U is a three-day overnight camp where students learn from top quality instructors and grow their abilities in marching and movement, brass, woodwind, percussion, or color guard performance. Students will also learn leadership skills, physical fitness, and more. Spirit U campers will also get to meet, mingle, and rehearse alongside current members of Spirit of Atlanta Drum & Bugle Corps. At that point in the season, the corps members will be finalizing their spring training and preparing to depart for the summer tour. Spirit U will wrap up at the same time as the Spirit of Atlanta Preview show, where the corps debuts their summer production. One of our 2018 members who attended Spirit U last year, Melissa Lanier, says she loved getting to work with the SOA staff and mingling with members. “Spirit U is where I felt like Spirit of Atlanta is a family and I HAD to be a part of it!” Register before May 14th for $265, but after that, it’s $295.

New for 2018 is the expanded behind-the-scenes look “Backstage Pass” for the July 10th or 11th show days. Sign up today to get the opportunity to sit in the show warm-ups, experience performance day prep, watch an on-the-field rehearsal, and more.
