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!
MONDAY JULY 6 (8PM EDT)
CLASS 1: CHOOSING A WINTER GUARD SHOW
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.
MONDAY JULY 13 (8PM EDT)
CLASS 2: BRINGING YOUR SHOW TO LIFE
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.
MONDAY JULY 20 (8PM EDT)
CLASS 3: OPTIMIZING YOUR SHOW
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.
