Team Japan won the gold medal at the 2010 World Baton Twirling Federation Championships held in Bergen, Norway. This performance to Ravel’s Bolero is simply stunning! The artistry, precision, and musicality are breathtaking.

This lovely choreography was created by world champion Seishi Inagaki. Baton twirling athletes of this caliber are so inspiring! We applaud their commitment, training, and effort as we enjoy watching the beautiful fruits of their labor.

Appreciation to mouseinstinct for sharing this YouTube video and to for shooting the footage.

    OH MY GOSH!!! Congratulations to Team Japan….unbelievable. I was a member of the Sr. Team that won the United States Twirling Association award in 1969. We were the best of best at that time with creative outstanding routines by Natalie Hartman. It is with great pleasure to see the advancement of this sport to such high levels of difficulty and uniformity. Thank you for sharing,

      Hi Nancy,

      Thanks so much for your comment. Yes…isn’t it amazing to see how far the sport has come?

      I was also competing in 1969. What part of the country were you and Natalie from, and what was the name of the your Team?

    On the other hand, throwing your hair up in a ponytail to keep it off your neck like many of us do on a
    typical steamy August afternoon does not exactly cut it for a wedding.
    1920’s hairstyles were some of the most controversial changes that happened not only in hair fashion but in
    American culture in general. However, discuss with your stylist
    before getting anything done.
