Twirl Mania!

28 Feb

Baton twirling is an artistic and aerobic sport that promotes physical fitness. Twirling combines dance and gymnastics while manipulating one, two or three batons. Baton is done individually, in pairs and in teams.

The 19-member team ranges in age from elementary school to college students. The Brattleboro Area Baton Twirlers have performed in high profile events such as the Half Time Show at Patriot’s Stadium to the National Independence Day Parade in Washington DC as well has many local parades, variety shows, health fairs and exhibitions.


The Twirlers hold various fundraisers to raise money for their trips, as well as for new uniforms and a larger team banner.

“We are constantly searching for new opportunities,” says Cheryl Atamaniuk, “Every money raised counts towards subsidizing costs.”
