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.
