AWCT.pngAWCT Performance Wear and Youth Education in the Arts (YEA!) are proud to announce the extension of their partnership as AWCT Performance Wear will continue as the exclusive costume partner for The Cadets color guard and USBands.

Since 2017, AWCT has been the exclusive color guard costuming partner for the 10-Time World Champion Cadets and USBands, the national scholastic music service organization that serves as the sanctioning body for over 130 events and 600 high school music programs each year.

The design staff of The Cadets has been working closely with the team at AWCT to develop their visual identity through the color guard costuming this year for the 2019 production of “Behold.”

“We are extremely pleased to extend our partnership between YEA! and AWCT Performance Wear for the 85th Anniversary season of The Cadets. The quality, creativity and attention to detail that AWCT provides our organization is exceptional. We are delighted to encourage USBands member schools and other music programs to work with AWCT and have the same first-class experience,” said Vicki Ferrence Ray, Executive Director of YEA!

AWCT and YEA! will collaborate on a multi-faceted partnership throughout the 2019 Cadets summer tour and extend that through the USBands fall marching band season. Elements of the Associate Sponsorship will include comprehensive onsite and online activation as well as a robust social media campaign including educational and community-building opportunities for both organizations.

AWCT Performance Wear has emerged as a trendsetting force in the pageantry arts over the last 12 years. Reliable, affordable and committed to creating your vision, whether it’s with their extensive uniform and costume collection including flags, shoes and equipment or a completely custom look, as worn by the Cadets for the 2019 season.

Located in Allentown, Pa., Youth Education in the Arts is a not-for-profit organization that supports the development of young people into magnificent human beings through participation in the arts. Its programs include the 10-time World Champion Cadets, USBands, and the Xcape Dance Company.
