Colorguard is not the flag team of your parents' generation. Colorguard has evolved into an artistic dance activity that adds an important element to the pageantry of a competitive musical performance. Members will learn elements of ballet, modern dance, body control, and performance skills.

In high school band and guard you travel with your friends weekly, cheer on the Skippers, meet other bands, hear good music, and you'll be excited when you walk away from a great performance and share that moment with everyone around you.


During the winter, students will have the opportunity to join one of our Winterguards. Winterguards perform in gyms and arenas without the band. The Mandeville High Band performs in the elite Scholastic A class in our circuit, and has been named a Circuit Champion, Regional Champion, Regional Finalist, and World Semi-Finalist in recent years, including the highest score and placement ever in MHS history with a 24th place finish at WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio...and earning the highest score of any team in Louisiana or the Gulf South.
