Competitive Twirling Teams

“The ultimate expression of the team event is, if the baton were taken away, we would see a viable dance routine and if the athletes’ feet were affixed to the floor the baton would still be in near constant motion.”

If you are looking for a combination of twirling and dancing this is for you! Group events give the students a chance to compete in a less stressful environment and are often the place where the students develop new and lasting friendships. The degree of success and errors are shared by all the members thus creating a feeling of togetherness, leadership and team spirit. The emphasis is on basic twirling skills, performance skills, rhythm/timing, musicality, formations and precision and unison.

STUDENTS SHOULD CONSIDER PARTICIPATING IN TEAM FOR FUN, LEADERSHIP, FRIENDSHIP AND UNITY, NOT AS AN AVENUE TO IMPROVE THEIR INDIVIDUAL TWIRLING SKILLS.
