The Color Guard, or "Auxilliary",
combine dance, drama, and performance - with the manipulation
of flags, sabers, and rifles - into a magical pageantry. Color
Guard is now one of the most popular activities for girls
in the high school curriculum. This outstanding performing
group is an intricate part of the fall season Marching
Band program. In the winter and spring seasons, students
perform in a number of dance recitals plus official Winter
Guard appearances. The Winter Guard often travels to venues
across the state and region in pageantry theater competitions
incorporating a wide range of visual performance arts and
choreography. The Winter Guard is a seven-time WGI
World Championship finalist. They are the only Pinellas county
Winter Guard to be promoted to the WGI
World Class division.
The Color Guard and Winter Guard, under the direction of Mrs.
Jeannine Ford, performs with the Marching
Band at all appearances and competitions including Bands
of America regional and national events. Visual effects are
important elements in competition scoring and high scores
require a competent and highly rehearsed Color Guard.
A summer Dance Camp program provides opportunities
for incoming freshmen and returning students to improve their
skills during the summer break.
The Color Guard and Winter Guard are integral
components of the Leadership Conservatory for the Arts and
are supported and funded in part by the Band Booster organization.
