Are there any majorettes in the LA area?
I will be in LA around June 9th. We could meet and maybe practice together :)
Those double practices will get ya.
This was me after practice number one on Monday. Sometimes naptime just happens wherever naptime is convenient.
This was me in the middle of team practice when the choreography didn’t involve me. Or at contests. Especially at contests. Currently
this is crypticmetafour sleeping at a contest
So at the contest last saturday which was awful by the way i did compulsories for comments. i passed them like a year ago but now i have to do them for freestyle so anyway the lady he was doing it said that i handle the baton beautifully i just need to work on my bodywork story of my life aldkfjalskdjfcompuslories
tonight is the last football game and it’s senior night. i loved twirling for football games but i’m glad that i won’t have to deal with the color guard coaches anymore who hate my guts. i wish my high school twirling experience would have been more pleasant in that respect
Already this year is so different than the past three. Freshman year I came to Vanden specifically because the band was awesome, and hopefully I could convince the band director to let me twirl for them. That didn’t happen.
Sophomore year I was persistent enough to get involved in the field shows at football games but I still couldn’t march and compete with the band. Finally as a junior I had multiple meetings with the band director and color guard instructors as well as my coach and I was able to twirl for band reviews. Never the less the color guard instructors still tried to keep me out of street marching and I probably cried every day after band camp. I ended up marching, which was awesome. But this year I received the letter for band camp with all the information, I showed up on the first day and was accepted. I didn’t have to fight to be there anymore. I don’t think anyone really questioned my being there and I was just part of it all.
It means so much to me that this happened because from 2nd-8th grade I twirled for my school and 9th grade was the first year I hadn’t represented a school. Luckily by my senior year I made it in. I made so many friends in band and color guard over the past three years and I am so lucky to be a part of it.
I have noticed that majorettes for bands in northern California are rare and color guard dominates this area (go color guard, you guys are legit and I wish I could spin like y’all). According to our band director the last majorette before me twirled in 1994, which was before I was even born and I wish there was an incoming freshman I could mentor to do baton so baton twirling would continue at Vanden but there isn’t. This year might be the last year Vanden will have a baton twirler for a while, and I am so glad to be part of it all.
