August 28, 2017

On Saturday, August 20, WGI Clinician Michael Shapiro hosted an educational clinic in Japan. Eager students from all over the country attended to enhance their color guard skills.

“It was a great pleasure to offer multiple classes to the almost 200 students at the Japan Summer Marching Festival,” stated Shapiro.

The Festival included a beginner class that featured movement fundamentals, flag technique and flag choreography, and an advanced class that offered a more challenging flag piece, rifle technique, and rifle choreography.

Shapiro reflected on the experience stating, “The performers’ attention to detail and excitement about learning new skills was a real joy to behold and made for a truly wonderful experience.”
