Color Guard - Winter Guard
Mr. Parrott is originally from Crossville, Tennessee.  He studied modern and aerial dance at East Tennessee State University, where he received his B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies in Theatre and Dance in 2018.  He has enjoyed performing both on the stage, street, ground, and air with Mountain Movers Dance Company for many years throughout northeast TN and has presented choreography in various venues in Tennessee and in New Orleans through the InFringe Festival.  He has also studied with the American Dance Festival (Durham, NC) and Aerial Dance Festival (Boulder, CO) under Nancy Smith.  Before moving around the country, Mr. Parrott taught aerial dance at Azure Aerial Arts and Night Owl Circus Arts in Johnson City, TN.  He recently completed an apprenticeship with ShaLeigh Dance Works in Durham, NC where he was able to perform and learn from truly magical people.  Currently, Mr. Parrott is pursuing his MA in Dance Education at the University of Northern Colorado.
Mr. Parrott’s interest in color guard began when he played with his mom’s old flag in the garage when he was a tiny tot, and he knew that he wanted to one day learn more.  Many years later, he stumbled into Southeast Independent in Kingsport, TN, where he found a love and passion for this activity.  He performed with Aria Winterguard (Greensboro, NC), Carolina Gold Drum and Bugle Corps (Raleigh, NC), and Legacy Independent presented by Carolina Gold (Raleigh, NC). Mr. Parrott is thankful and appreciative of all the educators that have helped him on his pageantry journey and is appreciative of the community that this activity provides.
Mr. Parrott has also been fortunate to teach in a variety of locations and is thankful for the lessons each experience has provided, meeting many wonderful people along the way.  Past educational credits include Sullivan South HS (Kingsport, TN), Science Hill HS (Johnson City, TN), Cary HS (Cary, NC), Corinth Holders HS (Wendell, NC), Athens Drive HS (Raleigh, NC), Stateline Independent (Bristol, TN), and Carolina Gold Drum and Bugle Corps (Raleigh, NC).
