My instructor also an English major, has started a color guard magazine. Guard Feature, the magazine, seeks supplement educators, performers, students and their parents, with the information necessary to grow intellectually and professionally. I would appreciate it if you can check out the website below. Please feel free to promote it and help spread the word in the color guard community. Thank you so much
more-like-mexicant asked: Hey girls! I'm planning on auditioning for Sac World next year. What skills should I know? What can I do to prepare? I'm scared out of my mind, but so excited. Good luck this season!
You’re going to be great!! :)
I would stay in shape and work on dance and challenge yourself! As long as you show your passion to color guard and show how much you want to be there they will notice.
Message me either here on spinzone or on icanneverthinkofcoolurls for the information of where Sac spin will be, what time, and when auditions will be held!
Don’t forget theres Sac A, SacO, and Sac World!
What it REALLY is:
& The most important:
harrypotterhippie asked: For your captain ask you posted-- try initiating team sleepovers/breakfast before competitions! Make sister gifts-- pair everybody up with someone they aren't necessarily super close with and have everybody make lists of small things they like. Everybody will get their "sister" a gift (small, $5-10 if even; thought that counts) before big competitions/whenever you want. Do the Hokey Pokey or Cupid Shuffle before performance! I just became captain of my team; it works! Good luck this season! :)
zombiegurl62 asked: so I'm trying out for captain of my colorguard for the upcoming fall season. One of the requirements is to come up with 3 team building activities. We had a major morale problem this past winter season, and we need to improve. But honestly, I don't know any. Would you be able to help?
I’ve always been part of a guard where we somehow bond over a song and make a dance to it to do before every performance.
Try some team walks during the week
There’s always the one where everyone brings their hands into the middle and they have a pep talk then scream your school name or group name
I’m not really sure of any others since the years I’ve been in guard nothing has really changed.
Any followers have any other suggestions?!
You don’t know upset until you wait almost a month for Jolesch to post pictures and none of them are of you
This was like one of the happiest moments of my life. I’m so happy for them!
Stephen looks like he’s helping him up. “C’mon little buddy, what’s over the fence? oh shit they spotted us!”
7 with a cartwheel, something I never thought I’d be able to do, especially in one day :D
Well damn. Get it!
GET IT MALAN.
CAN A GUARD BLOG POST THIS ALREADY! I WANT NOTES! XD
If we ever place lower than expected, it’s never the winds’ or percussion’s fault. Every section blames another, but a lot choose color guard. We’ve had people learn their music the day-of, we’ve had players forget their instruments, we’ve had some admit they didn’t even play, but none of that matters because there’s a color guard to blame.
