Blake Dutton, originally from Dallas, TX, graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication Design along with a minor in Marketing from the University of North Texas. Shortly after graduating, he relocated to Indianapolis, IN where he's currently a part of the color guard instructional staff at Carmel and Center Grove High School.

Dutton was a member of The Cavaliers Color Guard from 2007 through 2010, along with other performance experience including Ars Nova Winter Guard (2007-2011), Pride of Cincinnati Winter Guard (2012), and most recently the Pride of Cincinnati Dance Ensemble (2014).

Entering his fifth year on staff with his alma mater, Dutton is beyond thrilled to create with and inspire the 2016 edition of The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps.
