Spirit of Atlanta is proud to present SPIRIT U – our educational camp series for students, band directors, parents, boosters, and anyone who participates in marching arts programs anywhere. SPIRIT U is the only summer band camp in our area where you can experience what it is like in a DCI World-Class drum and bugle corps. You’ll get up-close and personal with staff and members of Spirit of Atlanta, and even get to perform with them! What is Spirit U, 2021? For students aged 12-18, it’s a one-day virtual band camp where you will learn from top-quality instructors and grow your abilities in marching and movement, brass, woodwind, percussion, or color guard performance. In addition, our program teaches leadership skills, physical fitness, and much more. You’ll also have the opportunity, if you live local to the Atlanta area, to meet, mingle, and rehearse alongside members of Spirit of Atlanta Drum & Bugle Corps, who will be in the throes of their spring training, preparing to depart for their summer tour.
The Spirit U experience will wrap up with a special performance by the drum corps and any local participants, performing some of Spirit of Atlanta Drum & Bugle Corps' signature tunes.
The Spirit U team includes current and past members of Spirit of Atlanta’s instructional team, as well as highly sought-after directors and clinicians from programs around the Southeastern US. It’s a fantastic first step for anyone who has a dream of marching in a DCI corps.
Since we've been running these camps, multiple Spirit U veterans have gone on to earn contracted positions in Spirit of Atlanta the following years.
