Baton Twirling is a hard sport to define. But largely, baton twirling consists of majorettes,
rythmic gymnastics, dance, and cheerleading. It is a sport which is often not regarded highly enough of. It's competitors
are skilled athletes, who train hard to get where they are.
There are two main baton twirling associations at the moment in England. They are the National
Baton Twirling Association (NBTA), and the British Baton Twirling Sports Association (BBTSA). Within both of these associations,
regional, national, and international competitions are held.
Some of the routines are based solely on the persons ability to twirl. But, in some events,
you are also judged on your ability to dance, and interpret the music into your own style.
Baton Twirling is a very involved sport, where you have to be dedicated to it, as it holds
expense when you are competing all over the country, and sometimes in different countries.
