Winter Guard

Winter Guard promotes education, creativity and freedom of expression through the unification of pageantry and the performing arts. Winter Guard’s performances combine spinning flags, rifles, and sabers along with dance, colorful uniforms and props to create exciting imagery. Dance skills, theater techniques and equipment, along with physical strength and stamina give Winter Guard members a complete workout and a fun after-school activity. Winter Guard also helps to develop new techniques and hone established skills so members are ready for the fall Marching Band season.
