East High School is proud to offer color guard. The East High Color Guard is a competitive ensemble that performs alongside the East High Marching Band. Color guard is a unique activity that combines athleticism with equipment work, dance, and theatrics. To perfect the combination of these elements, color guard practices both before and after school and throughout the summer, including a two-week choreography/band camp rehearsal each August.
The Iowa High School Music Association sanctions high school band competitions and events. Through involvement in color guard, students learn valuable life skills, including teamwork, discipline, and presentation.
