Cavalier Band Color Guard
Color Guard, known nationwide as the “sport of the arts”, is one of the fastest growing activities in today’s high schools. It is a high energy sport that advances students into a new area of performing and visual arts, including dance, gymnastics, theater, acrobatics, equipment manipulation (including flags, rifles, sabers and other props), and visual color. A variety of dance idioms are incorporated, including ballet, jazz, and modern styles.
The Lake Travis High School Color Guard is comprised of LTHS students, 9th-12th grade. Any student enrolled is eligible to join! In the fall, the LTHS Color Guard participates with the Cavalier Marching Band in football games and competitive performances around the state. In the winter, the color guard performs visual shows set to music in an indoor setting, and travels as a group to compete with other color guards.
The best part of color guard, however, is not necessarily the dance, equipment, props, championships or trips. Participation in the color guard promotes the development of physical fitness, self-confidence, discipline and other life skills. Color guard members become a family for one another throughout their high school experience.
Participation in the LTHS Color Guard requires only one class period: a “single blocked” class. Additionally, students who participate receive fine arts credit and PE credit! To sign up, all students need to do is visit, call or email a Lake Travis High School guidance counselor!
