The color guard at Rosemount High School is a part of the marching band and music program. During football season, the color guard is an integral part of the marching design, color palette, and musical interpretation of the show. By using flags, sabres, mock rifles, swing flags, and other pieces of equipment pertaining to the music, as well as a mix of ballet, jazz, modern, and contemporary modern dance, the color guard interprets the music into a stunning visual element and to express dynamic passages in the music accompanying the marching band show.
The Rosemount Color Guard consists of high school students who benefit from being in a world-class organization and have the opportunity to work with some of the best professional color guard instructors and performers in the world. Top-quality instruction is critical to the success of the color guard and allows success and contributes to the rich tradition of excellence, which makes the Rosemount Bands so well known.

Beginning Flagline Ensemble (Will begin again in Janary 2022)
(Open to CURRENT 8thGrade Band students from Rosemount Middle & Scott Highland Middle Schools – BOYS AND GIRLS ARE WELCOME)
The purpose of the “Flagline” program is to introduce students to the Rosemount Color Guard program and the Rosemount Marching Band program. By teaching the students fundamental skills on flag, marching, and movement, students incorporate these skills into a routine. The students will perform and demonstrate for friends and family at a couple of metro area shows in February and March.
The RHS Flagline program is a great way to meet other motivated and interested students in a positive atmosphere. The students will learn the value of hard work while gaining new performance skills. Color guard is also an excellent confidence builder as the students learn to work together as a team. Patience, leadership skills, and creative thinking are only a few reasons to be involved with the Rosemount Flagline Color Guard program!
