COLOR GUARD COMPETITION SUNDAY, JANUARY 29, 2012
Twenty-eight units will be performing at a Midwest Color Guard Circuit show in Naperville North High School’s field house on Sunday, January 29, 2012. Sponsored by the Steperettes Guard and Parent Organization, the competition will begin at 10:00 and will conclude by 3:30 Price of admission is $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for children.
The Steperette Cadets, a program of the Naperville Park District, will be the first of the area groups with a performance time around 10:00. Naperville Central and Waubonsie Valley’s color guards will appear after 12:30. Rounding out the field will be groups from throughout the midwest. Units will perform in nine different classifications, with the most experienced units toward the end of the program. Regardless of class, the musically-driven, colorful presentations will be enjoyable for all ages.
The Steperettes Organization has existed in Naperville for over 40 years. Originally a nationally-renowned baton twirling corps, the group has won many awards, including Midwest Color Guard Circuit and Winter Guard International Regional A championships. Members of the Steperette Cadets are third through eighth graders; alumni march in each of the District 203 and 204 color guards. The Steperette Cadet program is an outgrowth of the Park District’s “Fun With Flags” classes that are offered each session at Beebe School.
