Meet Your Instructor
Jared "Cedric" Norberg has been marching with Chops, Inc. since 2007 and the Govenaires since 2009, and is proud to have been part of the Govenaires' Colorguard for three of their four DCA Class A Championship wins (2009, 2011, and 2015). In 2012 he attained his English B.A. from UMN Twin Cities, where he also spent 3 years taking various dance classes. He has worked with various band programs around the metro area, and is currently in his 4th and 7th years with the Andover Huskies Marching Band and the Maple Lake Marching Irish respectively.
He’ll teach you all the movements, help you with the choreography, and, of course, you’ll have a lot of fun together.
Are you ready to join? Let’s make this season unforgettable!
