Tiger Streak Color Guard


Danceline
Flag Corps - Tiger Streak

The Tiger Streak Flag Corps is a group of 12-16 young ladies who excel in the art of twirling flags. Auditions are held in the spring semester for students, and once admitted, strict self-discipline is expected. The flag troupe adds color and flare to the band, and other instruments are used besides traditional flags to add variety and showmanship to the performance, such as hoops, swing flags, and ribbons.
