Classification Breakdown


Below is a description of each class to help instructors make an informed decision about what class to register their groups in. We encourage you to read through and reflect on the current status of you and your students' abilities and goals. This post currently reflects the classes SVWAA offers, but can change as we grow.

 

REGIONAL A


Regional A Silver: This division is for DEVELOPING groups. Those with a few members who have performed before and have an idea of what is expected of them. Majority of performers in this class will have a low level of understanding of movement, equipment or music, and drill responsibilities.


Regional A Gold: This division is for ESTABLISHED groups. Those with majority of the performers having experience in the activity. Performers in this class will have a basic level of understanding of movement, equipment or music, and drill responsibilities. The skill level still aligns with WGI Regional A class score sheets.


Instructors of Regional A groups tend to be newer to teaching.


SCHOLASTIC A


Scholastic A Silver: This division is for INTERMEDIATE groups. Those with majority of the performers having a few years of experience in the activity. Majority of performers in this class will have an intermediate level of understanding of movement, equipment or music, and drill responsibilities. There is a wider range of performance skills.


Scholastic A Gold: This division is for groups who are PUSHING THE BOUNDARY into Open Class. Majority of performers in this class will have an advanced level of understanding of movement, equipment or music, and drill responsibilities. We can see a greater level of challenge and achievement in this class. Performance skills showcase a high level of ability.


Instructors of Scholastic A groups tend to have more experience and years in teaching.


SCHOLASTIC OPEN


This class is for ADVANCED groups. Those with majority of the performers having several years of experience in the activity. There is broad range of performance skills and a great level of achievement. These groups are exploring more demanding equipment or music and body vocabulary. Show design also reflects a high level of understanding of musicality, creativity, and orchestration through time.


Instructors of Open class groups tend to be veterans with many years of teaching and experience.
