Just in case you don’t already know, Colorguard is a combination of the use of flag, sabers, mock rifles, and other equipment, as well as dance and other interpretive movement. Winter colorguards can be found in high schools, middle schools, universities, and other independent organizations around the world, some of which are affiliated with Drum Corps.
