If you know name the of the boy baton twirler, shoot us an email at info@vintage-baton-twirler.org or leave a comment at the end of this post. We think he took lessons at Diana School of Dance, which had locations in Chicago and Orland Park, Illinios. The studio was owned and operated by DiAna Tarandy who taught the baton twirling along with the rudiments of ballet, tap, jazz and acrobatics.
