In My Own Words: Band of Sisters--Being a member of the indoor color guard

In My Own Words

In this installment of In My Own Words, Lyana Hall discusses her love of being a member of the indoor color guard.

There are so many reasons why I enjoy color guard. For starters everyone who is in color guard isn’t just a member, they are family. Being a family we are supportive of one another in everything we do.

Color is year round with indoor and outdoor seasons. I prefer the indoor color guard season. Don't get me wrong, I like outdoors too. I like going to the football games cheering for our team. But what I really love is competing against different schools and watching their amazing performances during competitions.

I have been color guard for two years now joining when I was in seventh grade. While in middle school, we traveled with the high school team members. These mentors taught us the dance moves. Luckily, if we messed up they didn't hold it against us as they fostered a community of sisterhood.  

I loved watching the high school members perform when I was in seventh grade. There was so much to learn and seeing them inspired me. I was excited for every practice ready to learn dance time we had.

Every time we have practice I get excited ready to practice old routines and learn new ones.  My passion relies on me spinning and dancing. 

Joining guard was definitely my best decision. Color guard let’s you be creative plus its a lot of fun. There's lots of joking and laughing. You should consider joining.
