My Interest I became interested in color guard when I saw them in parades when I was in elementary school because I love to sing and dance and it is another type of performance that I could be involved in. History of Color Guard Color guard started in the military then progressed. Color Guard Series. Continuing our industry-leading product development in 2006, we launched the our line of all-inclusive shows for winter guard. Including choreography, staging for three group sizes, and a digitally-mastered soundtrack, you can begin teaching right out of the box!
