Baton Twirling.... What is it ?
Baton twirling is an amazingly diverse sport.
It combines athletic ability with dexterity and grace. It is often confused with majorettes or cheerleading, but it is so much more.
An incredible sport to watch combining control of the baton, whilst dancing and displaying gymnastic ability.
Here at Top Hat we are lucky enough to have four highly qualified baton coaches to lead the students through their paces.
Julie McKenna was British champion several times over, and has competed for her country on many occasions at World Championship level placing 9th in the world at her peak!
Now a level 1 coach and qualified Judge, Julie now loves coaching our next budding twirling stars.
Twirling has taken Julie all over the world both training and competing, whilst making friendships from all around the globe. Canada, America, France, The Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland and Germany.
Competing for your country is both a thrilling and exciting ....
