A new session of beginner baton-twirling classes is starting on Thursday, January 19, 2023, at the Emmitsburg Community Center Gym.

The course runs for four consecutive Monday evenings and will be teaching basic twirling skills and marching. The course is taught by qualified instructors with decades of experience in twirling. Instruction is completely free. Batons are correctly sized for each child and are purchased at the first class of the course at a discounted rate.

Yearly, the Catoctin-Ettes hosts free beginner classes as a means to make the public aware of the growing sport of baton twirling, as well as to offer a new adventure for local youth.

Baton twirling takes place in gyms all over the world and encompasses many more levels than parade-style membership. This is a wonderful opportunity for youth to explore a new and exciting activity with no commitments.

For more information or registration, contact Donna Landsperger of the Catoctin-Ettes, an award-winning local non-profit twirling program established in 1972, at 240-405-2604 or email at [email protected] Please use the header BATON in the subject line of emails.
