Allie is 21 years old
and is from Bowling Green, Kentucky.
This is Allie’s
second year with the corps.
In high school, Allie
marched clarinet and was also drum major. She said she always loved watching
colorguard, but she thought it was something that she wouldn’t be able to do.
She began spinning during the marching season of her freshman year so she could
be involved with her school winterguard. She said, “The rest is history. I
completely fell in love with the activity”. And to top it all off, before she
joined the Baby Blue Squad, Allie marched 2012 and 2013 with Music City Drum
and Bugle Corps!
When asked his
favorite memory of the corps, she said it was a difficult choice. She said
there are just too many memories to choose from. She finally was able to narrow
it down to three. Either the Fourth of July parade in Bristol, Rhode Island,
Candy Land flagline rehearsal in Alabama, or all of finals week.
Allie said that she
knew after the first audition camp for the 2014 season that Spirit was where
she wanted to be. Allie said, “I auditioned for a few different corps in 2014
because at the time, Music City had folded and I was looking for a new home.
Spirit felt like home the second I walked in the door. It’s not easy to find a place
that gives you that feeling right away, so I accepted my contract and never
looked back. I had the best summer of my life with Spirit and I could not be
more excited to age out here”.
