The D-Y Odyssey Color Guard is a highly skilled performing ensemble that competes extensively during the school year. During the past ten years, the guard has received many awards, traveled and competed at the national level and toured internationally. The guard performs with the marching band during the fall season and as a separate ensemble during the winter. Rehearsals are scheduled for two evenings a week and on Saturdays. There are also summer rehearsals. No experience is necessary. Many students have participated in both athletics and color guard while maintaining honor roll status. Members of the ensemble will be taught modern dance and the use of a wide variety of expressive visual equipment. The guard strives to achieve the highest possible level of professionalism in its shows and in the attitudes of its members.
