I was wondering if anybody knew any good websites for color guard help and new ways to practice and stuff. Or if you guys knew a site specifically just for color guard questions.


P.S.
I have a question that somebody might be able to answer. What is the primary dance style for color guard and what basic dance skills (arabasque, stag leap, splits) should I know for normal high school level color guard?

It really depends on the guard, but it's usually a form of stylized jazz. Some guards don't dance at all. And if it's an advanced guard, you might get some modern technique and more advanced jazz stuff.

just for example, here's what I might teach to a normal HS guard...
chasse
saute
assemble
jete
sissone
chainne turns
tendu/degage
kicks

for more advanced guards, I might add...
pirouettes
attitude turns
fouette jumps
contractions
layouts
russians

And typically the instructor will teach the specific technique....they want everyone to look the same. Are you currently on guard, or are you planning on trying out for one?

I'm planning on trying out, this is my last year to tryout, so i want to be sure that i make it, becuase form here on out it's college guard!

I've been watching the guard when i have free time in Chemistry, and it looks like a lot of fun, and right now i've been practicing with a broom stick.
