The Starettes

Congratulations to the 2018 Winterguard on their 4th place finish in the state @ FFCC!

Gaither High School's Color Guard
The Starettes are the colorful visual aspect of the Gaither Marching Cowboys Band. They work with the band during marching (football) season and independently during Winter Guard. The Starettes combine dance, flag, rifle, and sabre in a choreographed show and perform it to music. Being a Starette is a full year commitment. During marching season they practice two times a week and then stay after school for football games. During winter season they practice one to two days a week for Winter Guard.

  Marching Season
 Winter Guard
The Color Guard is the visual ensemble that greatly enhances the performances of the Gaither High School band. Members learn from skilled instructors in the areas of flag, rifle, saber and dance.  The Starettes are open to both men and women and auditions take place at the end of the school year. Students in the fall Color Guard are expected to participate in the Winter Guard/ Dance program.
During the months of November to April, the color guard takes a break from the football field and band, and goes in to a competitive season of their own. In what has now become winter guard, the  guard members go indoors to the gym and lay out a 4 minute show with drill design similar to that of marching band. Dance, flag, and weapons are used to express the music, which can be anything from classical to contemporary. Props may also be used to enhance this expression.
