If you already have a foundation of baton twirling skills, this class is for you! If you are looking for a beginning class, please see my listing for Baton Twirling 101. In this beginner-intermediate one week Summer Camp, students will continue to learn baton twirling while developing hand-eye coordination and wrist flexibility. Twirling helps to develop spatial awareness (left, right, up, down, front, back) as well as fine motor skills (which help them use pencils, scissors and keyboards)....
Learners will be advance their foundational skills and twirl the baton as well as move, toss and spin at the same time by the end of the week.
I was a baton twirler from 7th - 11th grade. After seeing fire spinners at a festival a few years ago, I remembered how fun it is to twirl so I picked up spinning baton again, and added staff spinning. I now spin fire at festivals as well. I look forward to teaching kids the fundamentals of twirling a baton. Twirling can be a life-long enjoyable sport and pastime that also adds flexibility and coordination to the whole body.
Practicing skills for 10 - 20 minutes between classes will make for a more enjoyable learning experience. Baton dropping in class and during practice will happen, no worries!! Building muscle memory takes time and practice. Practice makes better!
Student will need a baton with a weighted end. I recommend a baton in the $20-35 range with a 3/8" metal shaft and the length should be based on your child's size. You can find your child’s size by having them reach their arm straight out to the side then measuring from under their armpit to their longest outstretched finger- usually the middle finger. Once you've got this number add one inch for the perfect size. Or add two inches if you want to allow for your student's growth, but it can be a bit harder to manipulate. That being said, having a baton that is a little too small or a little too big is absolutely fine for this introductory course. For the glow-in-the-dark party during the last day of class, students will need one package with 4 glow in the dark necklaces and 8 small zipties.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
In order to have a safe twirling space, please locate a place in your home with about 5-10ft of open space for your student to twirl. Also please make sure that furniture is moved ahead of time if needed, and that there are no cords or any other tripping hazards in the dance area. Your student should be prepared for twirling before class starts by having the device set in a good spot that will allow me to see the twirler's body from head to knees so that I can provide feedback on movements, come dressed in comfortable clothes, have their baton and have a water bottle nearby.
