2018 Polaris Idol

This weekend the Academy had their annual Polaris Idol in Arnold Hall. So many talented cadets participated! It was amazing to see the cadets show off their talents, voices, and dance moves.


The first act of the night was Nikki Rozz and the Garden, the group performed an original song written for one of the member’s late grandma. It was a beautiful song with so much meaning behind the words.


Couple performs Alicia Keys - If I Ain't Got You, and we believed every word she sang!


Singer and pianist, Cadet Tory Mather entertained the crowd with a medley of music!


Cadet Kooper Hackmann, both unicycle and juggled for the crowd, which is more of a workout than we know.


Cadet Rose Bruns, soothed our ears with her sweet voice and ukulele.   


No Strings Attached made us all feel like children again with their medley of Disney classics on the saxophones!


Cadet Juan Duque and Andrea Hilario impressed us with their fast feet and dance moves.
