you guys didnt even begin to touch the surface of what color guard is.
performance quality isnt just smiling. you gotta be angry or sad or alter-ego or whatever fits the music.
tosses are the hardest.
you have to do ballet.
you have to point your feet
you have to remember drill.
you have to spin. sabers. flags. rifles.
you have to survive band camp.
you have to not only be cold, but burning hot.
you have to make the losing team your colorguarding for look good.
you have to put up with the band until winter guard.
and thats all the negatives.
positives.

1. a semi-cult which no one outside of it understands, because they cannot handle the greatness of it

2. a group of girls, and occasionally a gay guy, who make marching band far more interesting by dancing and twirling flags, sabres, rifles, batons, and sometimes the odd prop or two
Person 1: I don't like marching band shows. They're so boring.

Person 2: No they're not! Look at the shiny flags and weapons.

1. A true test of physical strength and ability.
2. The only place where you can legally flip it, whip it, and strip it!

A group of people dedicated to representing thier school the best way possible by spinning flags, rifle, sabers and other equipment. This group marches with a marching band and compliments the music they play through the use of color, body movement, and equipment.
Everyone in the COLOR GUARD did a beautiful toss just as the cymbals crashed.

girls (or guys) who freeze their butts off on football fields during field shows but still have the hugest smiles on their faces(hey showmanship points r always the easiest!!!) who start to think band or drumline guys r hot because they have no life outside of band/colorguard prac. and are always in step with the person next to you even when youre not in competition or at practice! also people who have the time of their lives tossing flags and hating it when people mistaken them for CHEERLEADERS.

Life.
Colorguard means spending every waking hour trying to improve each toss, becoming more emotional, hearing your guard instructor yell at you at the top of his lungs"Focus!Detail!Expression!Technique!"It about loving what you do, with the people you people you love-your guard family, a sisterhood(or family-depending of weather there is a guard boy) it's being everything you want to be in that moment-when your on the floor. It's our life, it's our love, it's our family, it's us......

A group of highly talented teenage girls. They must be able to dance, spin various pieces of equipment, hold their head up and portray emotion, and march in time, and pretend that its not negative 100 degress outside. It is the colorguard's job to bring life to a piece of music. They must be able to use their bodies, along with their equipment, to give the music a personality. Contrary to popular belief, they are not the rejects of the Cheerleader, the dance team, ext. Any guard girl could stand in front of a crowd and scream "Go Team Go!" however I really doubt a cheerleader could pick up a rifle, throw a quad, and catch it, all while holding your head high and portraying the emotion of the show. Many members of the band/drumline like to blame the colorguard when the band/drumline does bad, however, it is usually not their fault. I say usually because every group, band, colorguard, && drumline, will have a bad show sometime. Putting that aside though, it is the colorguard's ability to come back from a bad show and be 10X fiercer then last week that makes them so freakin' ah-mazing. Never try to understand a conversation between guard girls. Being in a colorguard mean developing the best friendships ever and therefore, many inside jokes that you will never understand. In conclusion, colorguard is ah-mazing && anyone who gets on here and says they aren't should just go ahead and go have sexual intercourse with themselves, mkay? No, really, just do it!
Person 1: Dude, the Colorguard is Hott!
Person 2: I know right!
Colorguard is ah-mazing, mkay?
