Special Needs Guard

Winter Guard is a choreographed performance that includes dance moves to music and the spinning of equipment such as flags performed on an indoor basketball court. There will be instruction on basic dance moves, traveling combinations, and flag spinning techniques. A performance will be choreographed that highlights each member's skills.

Practice sessions will be held on Mondays from 7-8pm, starting in late September. Please feel free to attend a few classes and see if this is an activity that will work for you and your family. All instruction and equipment will be provided free of charge.

It's great exercise and a lot of fun! Newcomers are always welcome.
