Baton Twirling Video: Japan’s Akemi Kimura

March 25th, 2009 · No Comments · Videos: Baton Soloists

This wonderful video is Akemi Kimura back in 2001. Her beautifully graceful style is a signature, and blends twirling, dance, and gymnastics seamlessly. Keep an eye out for creative floor work at 0:53, and for a wonderfully difficult and smooth roll section beginning at 0:57.

This routine is set to Chopin’s Nocturne. Akemi was Japan’s Senior Women alternate competitor at the 2001 World Baton Twirling Federation Championships held in Paris, France. This video was taken during her music check.

Japanese baton twirlers have been major contenders for many years on the international circuit and are represented by the Japan Sport Baton Association.
