A Premiere Competitive All-age Drum and Bugle Corps in the Ohio, Indiana, & Kentucky Region!
Always wanted to march with a summer corps? Don't have the time for an extended summer corps tour, or maybe the dues for a summer corps are just out of your reach? Maybe you did march and aged out, but still like to play? Well... you can, right here in Metropolitan Cincinnati, Ohio. With members from Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, Cincinnati Tradition Drum & Bugle Corps is a growing regional phenomenon. Having been a parade and exhibition corps for years, Tradition made the move into the competitive circuit of DCA in 2010 and successfully completed it's second season in 2011. The 2012 season was essentially a new corps for Cincinnati Tradition: a new look, a larger, stronger corps, a top rate staff, and a program designed to wow and entertain the audience!

The Cincinnati Tradition has some very exciting news from the color guard!
First I want to take a moment again to thank from the bottom of my heart, last season's guard choreographer, Christie Johnson. Her enthusiasm and wealth of knowledge and excitment was a major contributing factor to our success and growth as a guard and a drum corp. Christie and family have embarked on a new chapter in their lives and while we are excited that she will still be involved with CT, (she will be consulting from afar) she will be missed by the entire organization. Thank you again for making a real difference Christie, we wish you all the best in your new life in the sunshine state.
Our next chapter for the 2013 CT guard begins with the introduction of our newest choreographer, Marcus Daniels. Marcus is the current choreographer and instructor for Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia.
Marcus has over 20 years of performance and teaching experience in the field of performing arts, including 6 years of Drum and Bugle Corps and 4 years of Winter Guard. He is a former member of Speakeasy Winter Guard in Aurora Colorado; Sundowners Winter Guard in Madison Wisconsin; PresenTense Dance Company of Madison Wisconsin and Madison Scouts. Marcus has also choreographed and instructed some of West Virginia's top Color Guards including James Monroe High School Color Guard, Huntington High School Color Guard, and Cabell Midland High School Color Guard. He has been a guest Choreographer/Instructor at Yvonne DeKay School of Dance in Ironton, Ohio, since 2005.
His teaching career began in Denver, Colorado at Ponderosa High School (Color Guard Designer), Arapahoe High School (Winter Guard Designer), Eaglecrest High School (Visual Consultant), Rangeview High School, Northglenn High School (Visual Consultant/Weapons Tech), and Broomfield High School (Color Guard Designer). He was also Color Guard Designer for Nova Winter Guard of Denver Colorado in 1999.
Locally, Marcus has also served as the Minford High School Color Guard Instructor, Guyan Valley High School Color Guard Instructor, Marshall University Auxiliary Coordinator 1997-2004; and Hurricane High School Color Guard Designer in 2004.
He is also an experienced color guard adjudicator judging various festivals throughout the tri-state area, and serves on the board of trustees for Vertigo Indoor Pageantry Arts Association. Marcus is looking forward to another exciting season with Vertigo Winter Guard as choreographer.
We couldn't be happier that he has chosen to join the 2013 Cincinnati Tradition family.
