The Legends of Baton Twirling

Top Baton Twirlers, USA

In addition to our decades collection, we are building special collections including this collection of top baton twirlers from the United States. Since we are just getting started, the collections below are only partially complete. We will add more twirling events as time permits (solo, 2-Baton, etc.) Those with red stars have content.

Recorded Histories

Oral history is the collection and study of historical information using sound recordings of interviews with people having personal knowledge of past events. If you would like to share your personal oral history of baton twirling, please let us know. We are available to conduct interviews every Friday. Interviews will be available on this website. Once a substantial number of interviews have been conducted, they will be presented in podcast format. Nothing will be published without the interviewee’s written consent. Thank you for helping preserve the history of baton twirling.
