Josie Anderson - Creative Director

Josie began spinning  in 2001 with The Edmonton Sabers Marching Band. In 2004 she moved on to join The Edmonton Crusaders Marching Band where she performed in local Alberta circuits and the MACBDA circuit. She remained with the Crusaders until the organization folded in 2006/2007. In 2009 she began instructing the Edmonton Sabers, and in 2011 became the Director for the organization. In 2013 she pursued further opportunities to teach for Impact Performing Arts along with The Edmonton Ambassadors. In 2013, Josie joined CGCYEG Vintage and continues to perform with them today. In 2016 she took a year off from Vintage and spun with Escalade Winterguard competing in the WGI Las Vegas Power Regional. In 2017 she accepted the role as Artistic Director with CGCYEG and has continued teaching since. Josie enjoys spending time with her dog Penny, car karaoke, and traveling when she can. 

Ella-Mae Borynec - Instructor - Ambassadors

Ella has been a part of the marching band community for 17 years now. She started spinning at a young age and proceeded to climb the ladder to the world class level. During the winter season she stays busy teaching the Edmonton Ambassadors and spinning with Sempra Winterguard. In 2017 and 2018 she performed with DCI's Phantom Regiment and in 2019 she aged out with Carolina Crown who placed 4th in DCI finals. Throughout the year I pursue a bilingual business degree at the University of Alberta.

We can fix anything. We don't need any guidelines or formats. All we need to do is just let it flow right out of us. I'm going to mix up a little color. We’ll use Van Dyke Brown, Permanent Red, and a little bit of Prussian Blue. In nature, dead trees are just as normal as live trees. Life is too short to be alone, too precious. Share it with a friend.
