  • The Woodgrove Winter Guard is an indoor ensemble that prepares a competitive show each year during the winter and spring months. They use recorded music and perform on a tarp (or floor) which covers the gym floor. Through movement, equipment and character work, they help bring the music to life visually. The Winter Guard season begins in November and continues into April. 
    Who Can Join Winter Guard?
    Any 8th grader through high school senior who is interested in dance, performance, and being part of a dynamic and positive team. No experience is necessary, just a positive attitude and great work ethic. 
    How Can I Join Winter Guard?
    Winter Guard begins in November and continues into April. Auditions are held in October. Many students already in color guard audition and carry over into the winter guard season. Winter Guard rehearses Tuesdays/Thursdays/Fridays, with competitions on Saturdays and the occasional Sunday. Information will be posted here on our website. 
    How Do I Get Involved if I’m Not Yet a Woodgrove Student?
    The Harmony Middle School Color Guard Club is a way for younger students to become introduced to color guard. This is an after-school activity that meets once a week starting in November and goes through May. Any middle school student is eligible to participate. Details will be posted at Harmony MS and here on our website. 
    What is the Winter Guard Rehearsal and Performance Schedule?
    Winter Guard rehearses on Tuesdays/Thursdays/Fridays, with Saturday competitions and the occasional Sunday (at least one Sunday rehearsal and one Sunday competition). We begin competing in late January/early February. This ensemble competes both locally through Atlantic Indoor Association (AIA), and nationally through Winter Guard International (WGI). We also perform at the Woodgrove HS Fine Arts Gala in May.
    Why Should I Join the Winter Guard?
    Being a part of the Guard means making lifelong friends, belonging within a team, and becoming a part of a group that is supportive and caring. These ensembles don’t just teach how to spin a flag; they teach life lessons, such as teamwork, communication, and goal-oriented hard work.
    We hope you come and join us!
