Color & Winter Guard

Under the direction of Stephanie Walters and Sarah Anderson, the Color Guard has been a key element of the success of the Marching Band program by boosting the visual presentation scores.  The Winter Guard program has quickly moved up in classification in the AIA circuit (Virginia and North Carolina), winning third place in the AIA Championships and performing at the Nationals in Dayton, Ohio this year.

The Color Guard is the section of the John Champe Marching Band you see dancing and spinning flags during the marching band’s halftime show. They are the feature performers providing the visual impact to our marching band productions, and they learn their incredible equipment and dance skills through the training we provide in our color guard program. Besides the very high level of skill you’ll experience as a member of our color guard, you’ll make many new friends as you practice, travel, and perform with the John Champe Band.
