This is an exercise class that focuses mainly on your upper body. You will be using 5ft poles with flags attached. Requirement: Be able to manipulate a 5ft pole and stand for an hour.  Participants will be responsible for bringing flags back and forth to class.

This class will teach the basic movements for color guard and allow you to put them into different combinations creating a mini routine each week.  This class is not required to participate in the end of session festival, but that can change depending on the participants wishes.  You will build arm strength, learn a new skill and make new friends.  Come join us and let the fun begin!
