What makes color guard, color
guard? The equipment of course! Flags,
Rifles, and Sabers are just some of the basic
equipment that color guard uses.
Flags are usually colorful
representations of the music being selected.
The way that we tell a story through music deals
with movement and color. Flags come in many
shapes, sizes, and variety of designs. There
are great websites that can show you different
flag designs, and who knows? Maybe you can
design your own.
Weapons, which include, but
are not limited to rifles
and sabers, usually
portray a faster-paced part of a musical piece,
but not always. Think about weapons being
powerful instruments, maybe use them during a drum
break or drum solo...
can be used to enhance a theme or idea in any
show. And backdrops
can make a "messy" performance area look
clean and pleasing to the eye.
