As quickly as it all started, it has now ended.
I had never heard of Winter guard, so I you-tubed a few videos. it's really amazing. It reminds me a little of show choir (which my girls did in HS). The dancing is really amazing. Where do these kids start - dancing? gymnastics? Do all of them use props like flags and batons? Are they part of the marching band color guard in the fall (that's what the color guard does, right? I don't think we have one). Anyway, it was very cool. Will she/can she continue this in college?
A few of the girls on my dd's squad, including dd, did dance at some point in time, most of them just love guard from marching season.
As you said, most Winter Guards begin because Color Guard caught the bug, and doesn't want the season to end!
Good luck with the fundraising. :) I remember those days fondly... mulch, anyone? (why did we have to pick fundraisers that required lifting enormous bags of mulch?!?!). It's neat that she's become so invested in it. It sounds like a great extracurricular.
They are done until marching try outs in May.
Oh yes, we know all about it.
I used to march in Winter guard when I was young(er).
