Help Fernandina Beach Winterguard get a new floor!
Organized by: Rene Pittman
Winterguard is a sport of the arts, very similar to the colorguard "flag twirlers" you see alongside the marching band. Winterguard is an indoor colorguard. We compete throughout the state of Florida with competitions beginning in January and ending in April. It is a combination of dance, flag, saber, and rifle along with artistry and theatrics. We write a show to a recorded piece of music and perform on a vinyl floor inside a gymnasium. We compete with hundreds of winterguards from around the state of Florida.
The Fernandina Beach Winterguard has been rated superior and distinguished at both the district and state levels over the past several years. We have been silver medalists in the Florida Federation of Colorguards Circuit twice in the past five years! We strive to make our students the best performers they can be, which translates into them becoming outstanding young adults.
We have been using the same vinyl floor for the past seven indoor seasons! After layers of paint and dirt, our floor is simply worn out. The floor is a HUGE part of the show, as we write our entire show based on it! We wish to continue to grow as a group and in order to give our performers the best chance at success, a new floor is a necessity. The cost of a new winterguard floor is $1000, so every donation counts! Thank you for supporting the performance arts!
