Dark Skies Keep Blue Knights’ ‘Dark Dances’ Indoors

| |

Saturday, June 23 marked the first time in two days that the Blue Knights were able to complete their rehearsal blocks and do a full run through of their show before heading off to a perform their 2007 program, "Dark Dances," in Rockford, Ill. Before arriving to their housing site in Winnebago, Ill., the corps faced cancelled rehearsals, a rained out show and severe weather while staying in Iowa.

“It’s been an interesting past few days,” said Blue Knights color guard member Erica Huizenga.

After rehearsals were cut short on Thursday due to the weather, the Blue Knights decided to try their luck on Friday. While unpacking equipment outside in the afternoon, tornado sirens went off and the guard was directed to move indoors with the rest of the corps.
