Allegiance Color Guard seeks new members

WEST DUNDEE – Allegiance Color Guard, a local nonprofit youth performing arts program, is accepting new members for its upcoming “winter guard” season.

Winter Guard is an activity that blends traditional flag and rifle twirling with dance choreography, theatrical staging and competitive team sports. Previous color guard experience is not required to participate.

Membership in Allegiance is open to boys and girls in age groups 7 to 13 and 14 to 22.

Allegiance draws participants from communities throughout northern Illinois, including East Dundee, West Dundee, Carpentersville, Algonquin, Lake in the Hills, Crystal Lake, Huntley, Marengo and McHenry.

Rehearsals typically are held Wednesday nights at Dundee Middle School in West Dundee and Saturdays at Marengo Middle School in Marengo.

Newcomers are encouraged to participate in a free rehearsal to try it out before signing up.
