Imperial Dynasty is built on positive, often reconstructed discipline, perseverance, trust, self-esteem, teamwork, motivation, positive attitudes, education, awareness and personal success. Our vision came to life in 2003 and has steadily progressed. More children have been removed from the street corners and are using their time in a more positive way in the structured environment offered. We are a competitive drumline and colorguard associated with Winter Guard International (WGI), Tournament of Bands Indoor Association (TIA) and the American Marching Association (AMA) .We have won many trophies including seven (7) National Titles and two (2) State Championships in the AMA circuit. In TIA, we have completed our multiple season receiving Gold and Silver medals at Chapter 9 Championships and receiving Gold, Silver and Bronze medals at All-Chapter Championships in Wildwood, New Jersey. In 2013 We were ranked 9th in the world in WGI championships in the A class division.
Our mission is to remove children from street corners and place them in a positive, structured environment where they learn discipline, perseverance, teamwork, goal-setting, and motivation through music and dance education, competition, and community involvement, to develop the self-awareness, self-esteem, self-respect, and self-confidence needed for their academic and personal success.
