International Women’s Day Celebrates the Women of Baton Twirling

March 8th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Baton Twirlers In The News

We are taking a few moments today on this 2010 International Women’s Day, to reflect on and acknowledge all of the awesome women that are part of the sport of baton twirling.

There are strong and giving women worldwide that are baton twirling coaches and teachers. They instill confidence and skill in the students they work with, and are helping to create the empowered women of tomorrow through the activity of baton twirling. Many women involved in baton twirling are running small businesses, while often also being moms and running families.

Whether teaching a small group of students in a community center, coordinating a studio full of baton twirlers, organizing a baton team, troupe, or corps, or coaching an elite competitive athlete, we honor the women who continue to promote and share the joy of baton twirling.

    Special remembrance to Karen Fama of the Karenettes in Beckley, WV. Mrs. Fama has taught baton and Dance FOREVER in the Beckley area. She is a first class studio owner and has many 2nd and 3rd generation dancers/twirlers in her program. Love watching her continue to twirl in parades with her group.
