Cadets Winter Guard Inaugural Season


Despite the glooming clouds outside, Cadets Winter Guard's performance in Dayton, Ohio at the WGI World Championships was a ray of sunshine.

“Their performance was one of the most confident I saw the entire day,” said a spectator from Pittsburgh.

From the moment CWG took the floor, you could see that every member was engaged with each other and the audience.

“It was so refreshing to watch a guard that recognized each other and worked together to make their performance more than just another 16 counts of equipment work!” said Susan, a mom and color guard enthusiast from Georgia.

The entire team at Youth Education in the Arts! sends their congratulations on a hugely successful inaugural season for Cadets Winter Guard.

“It was one of the best runs they have had all season,” said Grant MacElhiney, administrative assistant at YEA!.

To close the 2015 season, a fan in Dayton said it best: "It was just AWESOME!”
