Baton twirling naturally involves twirling a baton, which is a balanced stick usually comprised of metal, but at competitive levels, baton twirling is much more. As with gymnastics, figure skating, and other sports combining agility with grace, competitive baton twirling requires a routine containing mandatory elements for scoring points. In a competition, a baton twirler may be required to twirl vertically, or perpendicular to the floor, and horizontally. Similarly, they are required to make a certain number of catches and releases and vary them throughout their routine. Baton twirling at some levels of competition requires twirlers to use more than one baton. Baton twirling is an essential element to many marching band performances, where you will see twirlers not only as drum majorettes, but also twirling other objects such as rifles, flags, and even flames. Twirlers are an integral part of a marching band performance as they add visual appeal to the overall musical performance. Many participants in middle and high school marching band drill teams, flag corps, and color guards may also be involved in competitive baton twirling individually.
The best place to learn how to perform baton twirling is through YouTube, as it gives you tutorial videos so you know exactly how to perform this movement.
both because baton twirling is like cheerleading but with a stick im am not going to say which is better because that is an opinion, but i will say that i disagree with the first answer. baton twirling is not like cheerleading with a stick because you have to learn physics to know the revolution of and speed of the baton, body placement under a metal stick that really hurts if it hits you, flexibility for being able to move under a flaming baton, partnering to learn how to throw the baton to your partner and figure out exactly where it should land, and how to protect oyurself from injuries both internally and externally involving a baton. baton twirling is not cheerleading with a stick. and this is coming from a cheerleader and a baton twirler. i know both sides of the story.
depends on which type of twirling you do- as in dma, nbta, usta, whatever. and it also on the event ur competing in- as in solo, rhythmic, two baton, etc.
