Post by ColorguardBHS2004 » Tue Mar 30, 2004 10:20 am

The colorguards final at bellflower are for them to make up a 2-3 min. show. You can pick any song and you have tro use rifle, flag and dance. We also have to know basics. Lot of the group has to toss 3,4,5,6 and even 7. well good luck to all of you on your finals


What's a good song to use for my final a little help here people

If you drop oh well pick it up and keep on going! DUH

Yeah my school does that too we have to get into groups and come up with a show. Then my teacher picks like two of them to perfrom at the end of the year concert. Last year my group did Bring me to life by Evanescence. This year i think well do My Immortal.

Granada has a guard Midterm and Final. For the midterm we do a full winterguard routine in groups from 2-5. For finals its a group of either 1 or 2 people.


I like to pick songs that are upbeat and fun, makes it easier to get into.

Every year our dance team has a show for their parents and it happens around the end of May, after our season is over. They invite us to perform and we do 2 routines. One flag and one rifle. Then on the day of finals the entire first period band comes out to the blacktop and we perform for them. It’s a lot of fun, cause the routines our entirely our thing, our instructor doesn't choreograph it all. Plus an entire routine of rifle, what more could you ask for? lol. Anyway, that's what we do.

yeah, its cool being able to work with fellow team mates on finals and what not for moral support, but writing routines on your own can be easier too because you can do you own thing! Thats cool that other guards have finals too, I always thought it was our schools unique thing, but little did i know! have fun guys! :lol:

finals...

Post by GuarDiva04 » Wed Mar 31, 2004 9:40 am

I used to do final routines in middle school and we just started doing them again at my High School. Last year, the instructors picked our groups (u know mixin up the creativity) and they put themes in a hat and we got to choose. My them was Opera. It was very hard to work with but I think in the long run it helped me to be more open to new styles and working with new people. When you're doing a final... try to do a different style of music, a different theme . It will show your instructors that you can do something different and it will be a challenge for yourself. Good songs from the Pirates of the Carribean soundtrack. OR Josh Groban.... hes great!

Last year we did it in groups but my group knew I was the one who liked to dance so they made up rifle work and I just ran around making up all these random hip hop/pop n lock type moves. It was really fun!!!!

This year we have a paper.

For songs to do a final to (songs I wanna do a WG routine to):
Christina Augilera - Infatuation
Jonny Lang - Rack Em Up
Santana - Maria Maria
Usher - You Make me Wanna
Aaliyah - Are you feelin' me?
Carl Carlton - She's a Bad Mamma Jamma
Mya - Do You Only Wanna Dance? (Dirty Dancing)

Haha yeah as you can tell I get bored.. these are songs I listen to alot and whenever I hear them I start to make up stuff in my head. Let us know how they go!!!
Uh-oh for life!
EAT THE FREAKIN COOKIE!!!
I can't get my fat ass off the ground.
