This year the theme is “the beat of my own drum.” It’s all about celebrating the individual style that you twirl with! Whether it’s ballet, street, contemporary, circus or just a whole lot of sass, in the lead up to World Baton Twirling Day we are celebrating your individuality, creativity and the freedom of artistry of our sport.
