The Dos Pueblos Dance Guard performs under the guidance of Sam Patera. The Dance Guard emphasizes both fundamental and advanced techniques of modern dance and drill. Coordination and graceful body movements are taught through innovative and entertaining dance routines utilizing flags, rifles, and sabers.
During the Fall Semester, the DPHS Dance Guard is integrated into the Marching Band and provide the main visual component of the field show. The group travels with the band to marching band competitions, but receives a separate score based solely on its performance in the show. During the Winter/Spring, the DPHS Dance Guard competes on their own in the Scholastic A Division of the WGASC and WGI.
