Join Our Teams


The Central Maine Twirling Corps program offers baton twirling classes for children ages 5-22, all levels and abilities. Twirling classes are offered annually in a series of six consecutive six-week sessions (total of 36 weeks) throughout the school year. The program is progressive, not repetitive. Class length and frequency is determined by twirler’s age, experience, and level of involvement in the program.  Class assignments are determined for each twirler by the instructor.

Each week twirlers work and build on the basic fundamentals of twirling and marching, and incorporating these fundamentals into individual and team routines. Twirlers also prepare for local performances in parades and community events as well as competitions, and the annual Central Maine Twirling Corps Recital held each spring.
