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.
you can see your beautiful flags in action while watching playbacks.
you can get friends with other colorguard folk.
you have something to do.
its a sport.
and thats all i can think of.
i spin for west orange n and we are beasts. better then you losers.

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......
Person 2: I know right!
Colorguard is ah-mazing, mkay?
