[Volcano_Vista_HS] Drumline Try Outs and Color Guard Workshop

Drumline Try Outs and Color Guard Workshop
When: Thu, May 5, 3:30pm - Fri, May 6, 5:30pm
Where: VVHS Band Room 

If you are interested in joining the Vanguard Color Guard next year, this is your chance to see what it is all about and meet the instructor!

The Color Guard uses props, along with movement, to express dynamic passages in the music accompanying the show. A colorguard is traditionally the visual representation of the music. Modern colorguards use flags, sabres, rifles, batons, swing flags, airblades, and a few other pieces of equipment, as well as a mix of ballet, jazz, modern, and contemporary modern dance.

Colorguards can be found in most American colleges, universities, high schools, middle schools, and independent drum corps. Members of most colorguard teams march along with their fellow marching band members. Today the guard uses choreography and equipment for added visual appeal during a marching band show. Usually marching bands and colorguards perform during football games at halftime, out of tradition. When in competition, the colorguard is judged in the caption auxiliary. During a competition the guard adds to the overall score of the band, but is also judged in its own category. Many colorguards also compete independently in such circuits as Winter Guard International (WGI) and Tournament Indoor Association (TIA).
