Event description

Description

The ONLY summer camp where you can practice and perform side-by-side with members and staff of DCI World Class Spirit of Atlanta!

You'll spend an entire day interacting with the current members!

What is Spirit U? For students aged 12-18, it's a 3-day overnight camp where you will learn from well-known instructors and grow your abilities in marching and movement, brass, woodwind, percussion, or colorguard performance, leadership skills, physical fitness, and much more.

Best of all, students have the opportunity to learn and perform alongside members of Spirit of Atlanta Drum & Bugle Corps, who will be finalizing their spring training and preparing to depart for the summer tour in DCI World Class. The Spirit U experience wraps up with a special performance at the Spirit of Atlanta Preview Show, where the corps will debuts their summer production. Led by Education Director Gary Gribble, the Spirit U team includes current and past members of Spirit of Atlanta's instructional team, as well as highly-sought-after directors and clinicians from programs around the southeast US.

For adults including Band Directors, band boosters, parents and volunteers, Spirit U features highly-informative educational 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 concerns, integration of electronics in a successful program design, fundraising, recruiting, and much more.

New for 2018! - We've extended the camp hours and number of offerings. More learning for the same price! A full day of activities planned for interaction with Spirit of Atlanta.
