Modern colorguard has evolved over the years into a form of entertainment similar to dance theater. Colorguard can be found in most American colleges, universities, high schools, middle schools, and independent drum corps. Colorguard uses props, along with movement, to express dynamic passages in the music accompanying the marching band show. A colorguard is traditionally the visual representation of the music. Modern colorguards use flags, sabres, rifles, batons, swing flags, airblades, and a few other pieces of equipment, as well as a mix of ballet, jazz, modern, andcontemporary modern dance. Usually marching bands and colorguards perform during football games at halftime, out of tradition. During competition the guard adds to the overall score of the band, but is also judged in its own category, usually auxiliary.
