Reminiscing College Majorette Days

March 16th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Moms (& Other Grown Ups) Who Were Twirlers


Came across a fun post in Heather Allen’s blog, Life in a Small Town.

Heather (pictured far right) shares photos and memories of fun days of band camp and half time performances as a college majorette in Tennessee. She is now a 26 year old wife and mother. I know many former twirlers can relate!

    I was a member of the Hayward Twirlettes (Hayward, CA) from 1959 to 1969. Patsy Hamilton was my teacher for 8 of those 10 years. I have wonderful memories of parades, bus trips, field competitions, Saturday drill sessions. Now I’m a grandmother of 10, but when I see a parade or watch a field show, or hear a John Phillip Souza march, I’m taken back.

    I was a Baton Twirling Student and studied many types of Dance for 10 yrs. i was also an Assistant Instructor at Shockley Dance Academy and Hazelwood High School Majorette for 3 yrs. Those were such great years, that I’ll never forget them!! One day, I’ll dance from my heart, for our Lord Father, should He want me to! Praise God!
