What is Color Guard and Winter Guard?

The TSLCA Colorguard Ensembles prides themselves on offering enriching opportunities that foster creativity, teamwork, and personal growth.

Our Color Guard program offers a dynamic curriculum that seamlessly integrates dance, drama, and performance skills, providing students with a unique avenue for self-expression and exploration. Whether you’re a seasoned performer or just beginning your journey, our program welcomes individuals of all skill levels and backgrounds.


At the high school level, the Color Guard assumes a pivotal role within our acclaimed Bands of America National Champion Marching Band. Beyond the football field, our talented Color Guard students continue to shine during the winter and spring seasons, captivating audiences with their mesmerizing performances in a variety of dance recitals and competitions.


We are thrilled to share the remarkable success of our Scholastic World Guard team, which was proudly awarded the WGI Scholastic World Class Championship titles not once, but twice – in both 2014 and 2016. These prestigious accolades stand as a testament to the unwavering dedication, exceptional skill, and boundless passion exhibited by our students, instructors, and support staff.


While Color Guard activities remain a cornerstone of our high school curriculum, we understand that many middle school students may not yet be aware of the countless benefits and rewarding experiences that our program offers. As such, we are committed to raising awareness and extending a warm invitation to all students who may be interested in exploring this enriching activity.


Participation in our Color Guard program goes beyond honing performance skills; it emphasizes the cultivation of essential life skills such as teamwork, commitment to excellence, leadership, and work ethic. These invaluable qualities not only contribute to personal development but also serve as valuable assets in academic and professional pursuits.


At TSLCA we believe that every student deserves the opportunity to discover their potential and pursue their passions. We invite you to join us on this transformative journey of self-discovery and achievement.


If you have any questions or would like further information about our Color Guard program, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Together, let’s inspire the next generation of performers and leaders.


By inspiring your imagination , cultivating the artist within, honing your intellect, and
developing your professionalism, TSLCA prepares you for your success in any
career you choose.



The Color Guard, or “Auxiliary”, combines 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 TSOPE/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.


The Color Guard and Winter Guard, under the direction of Mrs. Jeannine Ford, performs with the TSOPE/Marching Band at all appearances and competitions including Bands of America regional and national events.


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.
