Re: Closed toe vs. 1st Position Marching
That is why we changed. The visuals were too hard to get into from a closed toe position. And no, we did not spend hours and hours cleaning it. We taught it, we spent 10 minutes spot checking, and it got mentioned every now and then when someone was way too open or closed but we also didn't spend that much time standing still....
The people saying "too hard to clean" must have LOTS of time on their hands. The judges don't have time to go down the line and look at toe positions unless you give them the time. Teach it, get it reasonably close and remember the audience is a LONG ways away from the band. Nobody will notice if it's a "fist" or a "tennis ball".
