The West Powelton Drill Team & Drum Line under the direction of Mrs. Elsie Wise was established in 1991. West Powelton is one of the first drill team to perform at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. In the course of Fifteen years the team has won National, State and World Championships Competitions done events such as Governor Edward Rendell’s Inaugural parade, the Philadelphia’s Welcome to America Fourth of July Parade, the half time show for Philadelphia 76ERS and also Appearing in front of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor at the opening of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It’s to no ones surprise that when West Powelton hits the floor the excitement starts, no matter if it’s New York City, Las Vegas, Virginia or South Carolina each performance is always better than the last. The beat is strong with a flavor that can not be illustrated, with radical foot work and bold body movement unmatched by anyone, along with application to every little single detail only indicates the passion that these young men and women take there craft seriously. The discipline, team work and self respect are the key elements that make’s West Powelton most proud of its former members whom went on to college, military service and business ventures to become effective leaders of tomorrow. In January 2005 the West Powelton Drill Team & Drum Line was featured on CBS KYW TV News channel 3 in Philadelphia, a story about positive kids putting schoolwork and family first. Also was featured January 2006 on 10 NBC News channel, “ Murder in Philadelphia” a story about teenagers doing their part to prevent crime. We look forward to making our future brighter than our past
