2021 Pride of Cincinnati Season Announcement

Due to the global health crisis and the current restrictions on “mass gatherings” at indoor facilities in Ohio, the Pride of Cincinnati is proud to announce a brand new member experience. Not only will this season offer an exceptional educational experience for the 2021 cast, but it will also be a crucial element in the 40th Anniversary celebration of Pride of Cincinnati.

Members will participate in a mostly virtual, limited schedule of rehearsal, and two unique performance experiences. Virtual rehearsals, combined with a limited number of in-person interactions designed with safety as the highest priority, will create a season like no other.

Members will become the cast of a unique video project for submission to the recently announced 2021 WGI non-competitive class – “eShowcase”.  The seven-time World Championship Pride of Cincinnati creative staff is teaming up with professional videographers and editors to combine member-submitted videos and small group recordings into something exceptional.

The season will culminate with a “never done before” immersive in-person performance “MASKerade: Celebrating 40 years of Pride!” held in early May 2021.  This is something you will not want to miss!

Pride Summer Series – Designer Edition



Design Classes with Pride’s Design Team!

Get your tickets HERE!

Pride of Cincinnati is excited to offer three Designer Edition Classes! Each class will be an hour-long, interactive meeting environment with Pride’s Design Team: Michael Gaines, Keith Potter, Andrew Toth and Brady Sanders! These classes are for anyone looking to learn more about how to develop a winter production for your group, or anyone simply interested to learn more about how Pride of Cincinnati’s team brings their memorable shows to the WGI floor!

Class 1 will focus on the many considerations and choices that Pride’s Design Team goes through every season in the Summer planning months (that’s now!) that ultimately culminate in that year’s show concept. This part of the season is arguably the most consequential as a director or designer, and our goal in this hour is to offer insights and advice from Pride’s own experiences to help you feel prepared to pick the program that’s best for your team.

Class 2 will be all about how Pride’s Design Team takes a show idea and uses it to inform the next steps of show design: Costuming and Floors, Staging, Choreography, and all the choices that take a show from an idea to reality throughout the late Fall and early Winter.

Class 3 will focus on all the design decisions everyone faces once a show has premiered and the competitive season has begun. You can learn about how Pride incorporates judges’ feedback (both commentary and scores) and how the entire team plays a part in deciding what changes and what doesn’t, how we keep improving to maximize our show concept and get the absolute best performances out of our members.

Interested in all three classes?
Pride is excited to offer a 3-Class Package for only $30!

All Classes will be on Zoom, in password protected meetings, starting at 8pm Eastern and will last about an hour. All classes will be recorded, and we will email a link to the recording of your purchased class after the conclusion of the class. All classes will remain available to view through the conclusion of the Designer Edition Series at the end of July.

These classes are meant to be an interactive discussion. To get the discussion going, you can submit a question or questions related to the topic of the class when you buy your ticket (you’ll see a prompt when you’re checking out). If your question doesn’t fit in the character limit, please email them to [email protected], and we’ll add them.
