This summer offers a once in lifetime opportunity to do things in a way we have never attempted before, and explore a whole new set of performance opportunities. This summer, we’ve outlined three exciting member intensives which are designed to provide performance opportunities, maintain our culture of excellence, and serve as building blocks toward the 2022 season.
The first is our Music Intensive which includes a week-long learning experience for brass and percussion members where you will work hand in hand with the exceptional staff we all know and love. In addition, members will have a very exciting and unique opportunity to participate in a recording session for Extreme Music at Fox Studios in Hollywood! This is an amazing opportunity for our musicians to get a professional experience of this size and scale that may even include performances and clinics with special guest performers.
The second is our Color Guard Intensive which consists of a week-long retreat where members will have the opportunity to explore movement, dance, and equipment technique with Scott Chandler and our talented color guard staff. This will be a remarkable opportunity to get together as performers, developing and strengthening both individual and group skills. The intensive will feature special guest choreographers and culminate in a live performance shared with our friends, families, and fans.
The third, which we are very excited to share with you, is our Full Ensemble Performance Intensive. This is made possible thanks to a group of amazing international sponsors, and due to their support, The Blue Devils have received a special invitation to perform at the 15th anniversary of the Basel Tattoo in Switzerland! Of course, all these opportunities are subject to change as health, wellness, and safety will always be our number one priority.
And in the event we are not able to travel internationally or gather for one of these events, you can rest assured we have more exciting plans up our sleeve. If Basel doesn’t work out, we intend to host a 1-2 week Performance and Development Intensive in Hawaii or California which would also feature Guest Choreographers and culminate in a live performance that will be broadcast to the world. Additionally, we are hoping to organize BD Entertainment style performances around the United States throughout the summer months.
These member intensives are designed to serve as a building block for the future. These intensives are open to current members as well as individuals that receive a callback or contract for 2022 through the audition process. Don’t miss this opportunity to start learning what it means to be a Blue Devil. Come get immersed in the culture, learn from our staff, and be ready to hit the ground running for the 2022 season!
