The Atlantic Indoor Association, in partnership with the Carolina Winter Ensemble Association, is proud to announce DESIGNed – a new educational series offering Instructors, Designers and Staff members training on a variety of topics related to programing and design. DESIGNed will help designers and instructors make smarter design choices, and will aid them in bettering their understanding of the WGI Adjudication Process.
The first clinic in the DESIGNed series will be held on August 22, 2015 with clinicians Michael Lentz (Director, Onyx Color Guard) and John Leonard (Color Guard Caption Head, Phantom Regiment). Beginning at 9:00 AM, the clinic will be held at Wakefield High School in Raleigh, NC. Member organizations of AIA and CWEA are invited to attend free of charge (for the first two participants per organization)! For each attendee beyond two, there is a nominal fee charged to cover the cost of lunch.
The clinic will cover topics related to:
- Programming Choices
- General Effect
- Class-Appropriate Choices
- Planning Events
- Movement Choices
- Equipment Transitions
- Class-Appropriate Layering
- And much more!
“We have been working for several years on a partnership between the Atlantic Indoor Association and CWEA – I’m incredibly excited to see these ideas come to fruition and to bring a much needed educational experience for ALL of our instructors and designers,” said Cody Crawford, President of CWEA.
Paul Orsett, President of the Atlantic Indoor Association, remarked “We are excited to partner with CWEA! Working together allows us to bring to our groups the opportunity to learn from national designers in our activity and to meet one another in a non-competitive atmosphere to foster new friendships!”
