Virtual Baton Class

During the COVID19 isolation, FantastiX twirlers can keep practicing and we can "meet" online. Here are some videos for watching and learning and practicing. Contact Ms. A. for an online meeting after spring break (practice first!). Also, keep practicing your team routines and presentations.

You can download the official music from the USTA website for Marching, Presentation, and Solo. https://www.ustwirling.com/membership/DocumentList.aspx

Stretch every day.

More details coming soon.

FIRST YEAR SOLO

Ms. A. wanted to start your solos, when suddenly class was cancelled! Watch the videos to learn the parts.

Your SOLO is made of many twirls that you already know. A solo has 5 separate sections or chunks:

  1. Opening
  2. Fingers
  3. Rolls
  4. Flats
  5. Ending

Solo Videos:

More Solo Practice:

When you have practiced with the video and want to practice without the video, make a poster listing the 5 sections so you can remember what comes next. Also, you can download the official music from the USTA website: https://www.ustwirling.com/membership/DocumentList.aspx It's the second song on the list. I don't expect you to memorize the routine this year.
