Chantilly Charger Guard

The Chantilly High School Charger Guard is one of the most visible and unique parts of our music program.  Color guard is a competitive dance activity using props and equipment along with dance as a visual expression of the music performed by either a marching band or a recording.  Color guard is a cross section of athleticism and artistry that mixes modern dance and ballet with equipment, traditionally including flags, rifles and sabres.

The Charger Guard performs with the Mighty Marching Chargers from August through November, using equipment and choreography to enhance the visual effect of the marching band show.

From December through April, the Charger Guard competes in the Atlantic Indoor Association (AIA) and Winter Guard International (WGI) circuits. During this time of year, shows are performed indoors to recorded music, usually in a gymnasium or indoor arena.
