In honor of the 2017 ICCA tournament, The A Cappella Blog pursued short interviews with competing groups to develop insights into why and how groups approach competition, and to get appropriately excited for the tremendous shows ahead of us.
What’s your group name and on what date is your group’s quarterfinal?
Secondary Dominance, February 11th in DeKalb, Illinois.
How long has your group been around? Have you competed before?
We were established in 2004, and have competed for 9 years.
Why are you competing this year? What does your group hope to accomplish or get out of the experience?
We always love competing in ICCA because it gives us a chance to show off what we've been working on for the year. Of course we would love to move on, but just competing in quarter finals is a great learning experience and an awesome opportunity to see other amazing groups!
How is your group preparing for competition?
We have girls that are busy arranging songs, and our choreography chairs are hard at work creating dance moves and formations!
If you were to describe your group, or the set your group is planning for competition with just three words, what would they be?
Bubbly, dedicated, outgoing
