Anonymous asked: If you seen Somervilles HS winterguard...did you know what the name of their song was?
Nah I wish I did! :/
Anonymous asked: I'm gonna be teaching an incoming freshman (completely new) some basics to get her ready for auditions, what basics do you recommend? Just like, drops spins, singles, port spins, carves, body, ect?
o_0 please enlighten me on what a port spin is!
Focus a lot on posture! It’s a little weird thing but it carries throughout all of the things you just mentioned, and can separate a good spinner from a great spinner! go over dance basics a lot, and breaking DOWN all of those things you listed above into all of its parts (how to start, how to transition between each spin, where you hands are, how to stop, etc.) and show how SIGNIFICANT it is to start together; initiation is so important omg. So get your incoming freshmen in the habit of “those first few counts were really messy and not together let’s go over that/try it again” (once they get comfortable with spinning in the first place but you feel me) best of luck, i hope your freshmen are wonderful! :)
Anonymous asked: Do you know who did the show that had tents all over the floor? Im pretty sure they were wearing red uniforms and the guy tossed his rifle, slid under the tent and caught it and WGI finals. I think it was a high school but Im not positive.
Flanagan HS! Those fierce bitches.
Anonymous asked: is that a FOVA exercise? I really like the feet under the spins.

Okay color guard aside, I want to meet the human who finds and puts together the music used by SCV for the past decade.
From Damian Rice, to Jeff Buckley, last years Smile by Nat King Cole, and this years music. Dude, common, who is it?
His name is Jon Vanderkolff. He’s freaking AMAZING! He also does our drill :)
Oh snap, thank you! I most def want to meet him.
And you’re totally Josh’s friend from the airport, hey man congrats on your silver!
Hahaa he’s really nice!! And thank you :)
When someone does an impressive toss, catches it perfectly, then the world’s biggest smile shows on their face.
