Lanier High School Winter Guard
To help understand Winter Guard, it is an indoor activity, derived from military ceremonies or veteran organization ceremonies. Our performing group utilizes contemporary guard equipment (flags, rifles, sabers), modern dance, acting skills, and a wide variety of props. Unlike traditional color guard, winter guard is performed indoors, usually in a gymnasium or an indoor arena. Performances make use of recorded music rather than a live band.
The Winter Guard usually starts up in November and competes in regional competitions from January through late March/early April. The skills learned in Fall Guard are essential but Winter Guard is open for others to join as well depending on your schedule. Over the last few years, the Lanier Winter Guard program has included students from the Fall Guard and those who wish to learn about the activity during the winter season. For more information about how you can participate in the Winter Guard, contact Mr. Tingle.
The LHS Winter Guard selection process is based on audition and recommendation. We work very hard on training and timing of a very technical presentation. Rehearsals are typically after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
We invite you to come join us at one of our several performances during the competition year!
