+. takes lots of practice.
+. have to learn how to march, jazz run, stay on count, memorize every movement, be prepared for the worst, get to places in a limited amount of counts, toss, drop-spins, plus be graceful during it all.

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!
