The Viking Colorguard is an extension of the marching band. The colorguard is a combination of choreography, dance, and using equipment (such as flags). It is essential because it adds the visual element to any music being played. If the band is playing loudly, you'll see lots of color and flags sweeping across the field...If the drums are grooving, you might see some more dance-like elements.
But I don't know how to do all of that?
