April 6th, 2017 Press Release:
The Bluecoats, a non-profit youth education organization based in Canton, Ohio, are proud to announce the founding of Bluecoats Indoor, an exciting and innovative new performing arts program operating primarily in the Indianapolis, Indiana area.
Bluecoats Indoor, launching as a WGI Winterguard for the 2018 competitive season, will be under the direction of Bluecoats Executive Director David Glasgow. Bluecoats Artistic Director Jon Vanderkolff, Choreographer Jim Moore, Choreographer Greg Lagola, and Choreographer Carol Abohatab will serve as the creative team for the program. Christopher Drake will serve as Ensemble Administrator.
Glasgow is very excited to expand the scope of the Bluecoats organization’s programs. “In recent years, our design team has successfully developed a very unique brand of entertainment focused on searching for what’s “next” in our activity. We can’t wait to extend this design philosophy to a new creative outlet for the Bluecoats.”
Jon, Jim, Greg and Carol have successfully worked together on many projects over the past 20 years. Most recently, the four of them served as the primary designers for the WGI World Champion Santa Clara Vanguard Winterguard from 2006-2016. In addition, they serve as designers and choreographers for the Bluecoats, winning the DCI World Championship in 2016 with the popular production “Down Side Up.” Jon and Jim were also longtime members of the creative team for the Tony and Emmy award-winning production Blast!
