About the Cavalier Colorguard
Leading the charge...
The Lake Travis Cavalier Color Guard is part of the Lake Travis High School Band organization. The Color Guard, sometimes referred to simply as the "Guard", works to enhance the music that the band plays through visual performance. The Color Guard is the primary visual component of the Marching Band in the fall as part of its competitive show. They dance using Jazz, Ballet, Modern, & Contemporary techniques and we spin flags, rifles, and sabres in combination with these dance styles.

In the winter and early spring, the team splits into 2 teams (JV and Varsity) to prepare competitive indoor productions on their own. They have their own set and a large tarp that covers the gym floor, as a stage, & they have their own recorded music (usually a popular song), and much more intricate choreography. These shows are performed inside on the basketball court. This activity is known as Winter Guard (see www.wgi.org) The Winter Guard competes from late January to early April.
