CLINIC

Information

The Color Guard Clinic is designed for multiple levels of instruction for brand new or experienced performers looking to hone skills in flag or rifle. Over the course of 4 days, students develop a strong fundamental base of performance techniques, then learn how to create their own routines and build upon their skills after they leave the clinic. They are taught how to transfer what they learned to their peers back home.
