Experience Color Guard, the SPORT of the ARTS!
The color guard is a vital component of the marching band, as well as an independent performance ensemble in the winter months. During the fall, the color guard provides the visual storyline for the marching band show, and is a large part of the visual effect of the overall program. No experience is necessary to join the color guard. Instrumentalists may participate in color guard. Participation is open to both girls and boys. Dance experience is beneficial, but not required. Students learn modern approaches to dance, flag, rifle, and saber techniques. After marching band concludes, the MRHS Winter Guard stages an indoor routine to a recorded soundtrack and competes in the Carolina Winter Ensembles Association and Winterguard International events.
