Color Guard

What is Color Guard?

The Color Guard plays a vital role in the visual element and pageantry of the HPHS band program. Color Guard combines the art of music, classical ballet, modern dance, choreography, and theater all while spinning flags, rifles, and sabers. Known as a "sport of the arts," Color Guard has quickly become a highly competitive and social activity throughout the country and the world, even holding World Championships since 1976.

Who can be in Color Guard?

Anyone. You need no previous dance or spinning experience or any musical training to join. Our Guard staff will teach and train all those who are interested in being part of this fun and growing activity.

When does Color Guard meet?

The Guard is a year-round activity. In the fall, Color Guard "marches" with the HPHS Highlander Marching Band adding to the overall general effect of the marching show. At the end of the season, Color Guard continues to meet through spring, creating an indoor show for competition called Winter Guard.
