Halls High Color Guard


This course is designed to help students develop their skills as performers on both traditional color guard equipment as well as basic and intermediate dance skills. By allowing the guard to rehearse daily without the band, the students in the Color Guard have the opportunity to address and improve those issues specific to their unique performance demands.  This is a competitive, performance-based course and will require students to participate in after-school and/or evening rehearsals, various weekly performances, and weekend competitions.
