Lake Area Independent

We are committed to bringing a quality, world class performing arts experience to the gulf coast region.

Patrice Turner, Executive Director

Lake Area Independent formed in 2013 as an organization dedicated to providing experiences to young color guard performers that had a desire to grow. Since then, the organization has grown into Louisiana’s premier World Class winter guard as well as a regionally and nationally competitive organization.

We began as an organization built on the principles of providing opportunities beyond what a performing artist in Louisiana can find. From exposing our members to a broader performance experience to fostering an educational program unlike any in our region, Lake Area Independent continues to stay true to its beginnings.
