Grapevine High School Dance Guard
The Dance Guard is a select group of GHS students that perform with dance and a variety of equipment including flags, props, sabres, and rifles. The group is strongly oriented toward dance. Auditions for the Dance Guard occur in the spring and are open to any student that will be enrolled at Grapevine High School for the following school year. Membership is not limited by gender. The band program is always looking for additional people who would like to perform in the Dance Guard. The Dance Guard has many extra responsibilities including additional rehearsals, additional expenses, standards of appearance, etc. The Dance Guard is very physically demanding. They practice and perform outdoors during the hottest part of the year as a part of the GHS Mustang Band, and it is probably not appropriate for students with chronic health problems. They travel, perform, and compete with the Marching Band from August-November. In the spring, the Dance Guard members perform Winterguard routines with dance, flags, wooden rifles, and metallic sabres at community and athletic events, as well as local, state, and national competitions. The Dance Guard is involved in school and community events on a year-round basis. Prior dance experience is not required.
