Varsity Drill Team · First Male Excalibur Makes EPIC Top Corps


Jayden Herman, the first male Excalibur at GHS, made Top Corps 2020-21. EPIC Productions chooses 20-30 of the best drill team dancers in Utah as their Top Corps champions each year. This is also the first time a male dancer has been chosen to be in the Top Corps. We are so proud of Jayden!  He is paving the way for male dancers and fighting for the right for boys to compete on drill team. Here is what he said about his experience:

“Doing Top Corp was such a fun and different experience! I admit learning the dance through a video was a little hard but once you get it down it feels amazing! I was really nervous after submitting my video and very anxious to get the results. Once I found out I won, along with some other drill members from different schools, I was so excited! I was so happy that I got to break the barrier and be the first boy to ever win Top Corp! The Staff at EPIC was so nice and supportive. I was so grateful to my coach Meladi Hodges for giving me this opportunity and helping push through all the stereotypes and hate. If I could go back and experience this again I would!”
