This seems to be one of the few baton twirling communities on LJ and it hasn't been updated for almost a year! There must be more than a few of us interested in twirling on a semi-regular basis? Where is everyone?!

I've only recently started twirling, mostly on a whim after my finals, but I've managed to muddle my way along with only an illustrated guide circa 1970 and the internet as my twirling guides. I have a Manx brand baton that I bought via the internet. I've been practising on and off for about six months, but started make the time in the morning to do regular practise. As a result, I'm getting to grip with things at last.

I can do wrist and elbow rolls on both arms and have just started attempting double elbow rolls. My goal is to get the hang of them by June.

I do have an ongoing problem that I wouldn't mind getting some advice about: Whenever I attempt to catch a thumb toss I crack the knuckles of the palm side of my hands against the baton. I just cannot get the baton to fall into the palm of my hand! Did anyone else have this issue when they started out?

Hi All!

Name's Amanda. Been twirling for over 13 years and Counting. I twirl for Holly's Bunch Twirling Studio in Pepperell, MA. I compete around the New England area. As far as spins go, I have the 2 spin down and I'm working on my 3. At the moment its a "hit or miss" problem. I know how to twirl the following: Hoop, Flag, One baton, 2 baton, Fire baton, Lighted baton. I am the current Regional Champ of Adv. Hoop 16+ and the current Open Regional Champ of Adv. Flag 16+. I compete in Flag, hoop, solo, 2-baton, Showtwirl and modeling. Modeling is my hardest event because I'm not a girly girl so, having to put myself in there is hard.

I'm new in this community...certainly not new to twirling.

I've been twirling since I was 4...so that puts it at about 14 years now. You'd think with that much experience I'd be Advanced or Elite, but I'm not. I began twirling in a Marching Corps...we did parades, and never any competitions or stage performances...so usually a lot of the things I learned were simple twirls.

When I began High School, I joined the twirling team. We weren't allowed to be a part of the Marching Band because the band director was a jerk and didn't want twirlers. Instead, we did polished routines which incorporated dance, gymnastics, and twirling for half time during the basketball games, sometimes during football games, and for a few local parades, and in the summer, competitions and such. It was because of that team that I decided to work on individual competition, and joined yet a third corps also.

Within those 4 years I learned what I needed to know to get started in the competition world of twirling and was getting good... I'd become a Beginner...but I was constantly placing in the top 3 in every competition, but then I went to college... a college that didn't have twirling, and I really miss it.

Now I'm transferring to Purdue, with a HUGE twirling line and some very honored positions (Golden Girl, Silver Twins, Lady in Black) and I'm trying out for the twirling line.

Problem is, I haven't practiced in a LONG time. I'm very rusty...so I have this summer to shape up. Any advice? Anyone that's a twirler for Purdue already?...

Anyone else out there struggling with new routines?

My two baton is evil...must kill myself and get it!

(I want to kick the brilliant person who came up with the high-low concept and whoever put the idea into my head that I need a three spin high-low)
