Baton twirling is a competitive sport involving the manipulation of a balanced metal rod with the hands and body to a co-ordinated routine, similar to rhythmic gymnastics. A baton routine may run solo or as a team in practiced sets.
Majorettes are baton twirlers who perform a routine to the music of a marching band as opposed to independent composition. Technically, twirling is a form of Object Manipulation.
Baton twirling as a sport has an unknown origin. Many people say that the Dutch introduced baton twirling to America in 1681 when they landed in Pennsylvania, others say Major Millsaps created baton twirling when he established Millsaps College in Mississippi after the Civil War.
