The groups name si actually spelled ESPRIT and they are from Southwestern High School in Hanover, Indiana. We traveled quite a distance to attend the competition at Southeast HS. We had a great time and were happy to represent Indiana. Jason Johnson has been our choreographer for the past 15 years. He is AMAZING and his choreography is the best in the Midwest. His shows are always very visual and entertaining. Thanks for the nice compliments. I will share this with my students.



Well if you or any groups you know of.. are ever in the midst of hiring a new/part time choreographer.. my name is Meghan Kunz. I have my resume and bio on show choirbuzz.com I choreograph for dance studios and I am also a choreographer in the midwest area. 17 years of dance.

Esprit was very enjoying to watch. To be honest, this is one of my top groups for the year. Great job.

Springfield Sound Explosion 2008

First year of finals.. here's how it went:

GC:Sullivan "Singers"
1RU:Danville "Delegation"
2RU:Southwestern "Espirit"
3RU:El Paso-Gridley "Modulation"
4RU:Glenwood "Titan Fever"
5RU:Joliet "Showsteelers"

Best Vocals & Choreography: Sullivan "Singers"

Sweepstakes Award: Sullivan "Singers"
This competition this year was rather long, went til about 1-1:30 AM this morning.

Espirit is a personal new fav. of mine. They are from Indiana and are like Dekalb/Eisenhower. There vocals and costumes were amazing. I don't know who their choreographer is, but the show was all-together awesome.

Also, might I add, Jeff Gemar's new group in Chatham, IL Glenwood H/S "Titan Fever" was amazing. The future for them is going to be great I think. They have a great director, and choreography was done by Gemar's son, Heath. Look out for this group.. they have a lot of potential!!

i loved this competition! except it was soooo long, sullivan was amazing, as was danville. Espirite was really good too!!!! I was a little upset that we didnt get to see the host's full show, but from what i saw of it, it looked threw together and the choreography was staight from music videos, maybe if i saw the whole show it would have been different. what did others think of the host's show!???
