The Elite Visual Ensemble offers Westlake Students a unique opportunity to learn and perform a wide range of movement, dance and theater skills at the State and National level. As part of the Westlake Band Program, EVE makes up the color guard section of the Chap Band. Color Guard is known as “the sport of the arts” and is one of the fastest growing activities in high schools across the nation. It is a high energy sport that combines dance (including ballet, jazz, and modern styles), gymnastics, theater, and equipment manipulation (including flags, rifles, sabres, and other props).
In the fall, the Elite Visual Ensemble performs as one of five sections in the award winning Westlake Chaparral Band at football games and competitions. In the spring, the Elite Visual Ensemble is comprised of 7-12 graders in EISD and performs as its own unit(s) indoors to recorded music and travels across the state to compete against other color guards.
Any Eanes ISD 7-12 grader is eligible to be in the Elite Visual Ensemble.
The Westlake Elite Visual Ensemble is unique in that freshmen and new members get to perform their very first year in the organization!
