Color Guard is a high energy performing and visual art which includes dance, gymnastics, theater, acrobatics, equipment manipulation (including flags, rifles, sabers and other props), and visual color. A variety of dance styles are incorporated, including ballet, jazz, and modern.
In the fall, the Color Guard participates with the marching band in football games and competitive performances. In the winter, the color guard performs visual shows set to music in an indoor setting, and competes with other color guards.
The best part of color guard, however, is not necessarily the dance, props, or tournaments. Color guard promotes the development of physical fitness, self-confidence, discipline and other life skills. Color guard members become a family for one another throughout their high school experience.
