2015 Academy Summer Youth Guard
The Summer Youth Guard (SYG) program of The Arizona Academy of the Performing Arts is designed to be an introductory program for students, ages 5-14, who are new to the color guard activity. This program teaches the fundamentals of color guard equipment and movement while building confidence, character and self-esteem in each of the students. It is an active, healthy, safe and fun activity to be a part of during the summer months. The SYG program is also intended to be a continuing education program for those who desire additional training and/or performance experience in the activity. This program can be a great head start for those students who are embarking on their first adventure as members of their high school color guard. Most SYG participants have gone on to perform in top high school, college, and professional Winter Guards and Drum Corps across the nation.
