Drake Parrott

Drake Parrott is originally from Crossville, TN and currently resides in Houston, TX. Drake studied modern and aerial dance at East Tennessee State University, where he received his B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies in Theatre and Dance in 2018. Drake has enjoyed performing both on the stage, street, ground, and air with Mountain Movers Dance Company for many years throughout Northeast TN and has presented choreography in various venues in Tennessee, Texas, and other states. He has also studied with the American Dance Festival (Durham, NC) and Aerial Dance Festival (Boulder, CO) under Nancy Smith. Before moving across the country, Drake taught aerial and modern dance at Azure Aerial Arts and Night Owl Circus Arts in Johnson City, Tennessee. In North Carolina, Drake performed with ShaLeigh Dance Works and is still part of the ShaGa Teacher Training Program. Drake recently graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 2022 with an MA in Dance Education. He currently teaches aerial dance at Texas Circus and Aerial and performs with Fenyx Aerial and JD Entertainment on the occasion.


Drake’s interest in colorguard began when he played with his mom’s old flag in the garage when he was a tiny tot, and he knew that he wanted to one day learn more. Many years later, he stumbled into Southeast Independent in Kingsport, TN, where he found a love and passion for this activity. From there, he performed with Aria Winterguard (Greensboro, NC), Carolina Gold Drum and Bugle Corps (Raleigh, NC), and Legacy Independent presented by Carolina Gold (Raleigh, NC), and Paramount. Drake is thankful and appreciative of all of the educators that have helped him on his pageantry journey and is appreciative of the community that this activity provides.


Drake has also been fortunate to teach in a variety of locations and is thankful for the lessons each experience has provided, meeting many wonderful people along the way. Past educational credits include Sullivan South HS (TN), Science Hill HS (TN), Cary HS (NC), Corinth Holders HS (NC), Athens Drive HS (NC), and Carolina Gold Drum and Bugle Corps (NC).


Since moving to Texas, Drake was the director of Cypress Creek HS from 2021-2023, and is a choreographer at William B Travis HS and Seven Lakes HS. He is currently piloting the inaugural colorguard program at Dulles HS. Drake is excited to be back for his third season as the movement specialist for the Blue Knights Color Guard!
