Watch Guide: Block Party - Behind The Scenes @ The Alamodome

Check out all of the incredible content we captured in the tunnel, the lot, and more at the 2019 DCI Southwestern Championship. For the first time in 2019, all of the World Class corps made their way to the same venue to perform for the same panel of judges and a huge crowd in an air-conditioned stadium.

While they were warming up and performing, we had a full team running around capturing videos in the lot and doing interviews with the designers, staff members and performers. We wanted to make it easy to watch all of those videos in one place so we've set up this week's Block Party to do just that!
