.......... In competition, judges reward correct fundamentals of both juggling and twirling with Olympic flash card scores from 0-10 points. Seven judges moderate the top events, with fewer used in preliminary and age level events. The USTA(U.S. Twirling Association) divides competitors into five levels of proficiency
- Fair, average, good, excellent and superior.
Each level has been divided into ten areas of focus:
-Three baton basics - intricacy of routine, releases, receptions, major and minor twirl classifications. -Number of batons in the air at once. -Aerial height - how low, medium and high tosses create contrast and rhythm. Most routines require a 45-foot ceiling! -Collections - how gathering batons for a new move is affected by strength, control, placement and timing. -Basic twirling techniques - followthrough, pattern, baton revolution. -Ambidexterity. Combinations of baton and body movement. -Dual pattern - the combination of vertical and horizontal patterns. -Dual plane and tri plane (toss to the front, side and back in the same move). -Dual direction - use of spinning batons in both directions to achieve greater artistic expression.
At the "fair" level, athletes will do basic three baton material. Juggling maneuvers will include:
-Vertical pendulums (tosses in a cascade pattern in a plane parallel to the body) -Crescents (one hand makes inside tosses, the other makes outside tosses) -Box showers (making shower tosses as the twirler tosses to front, side, back, and side) -Time tosses (crescents with a right-hand thumb toss and left hand backhand release) -One hand juggles (using only one hand to toss and catch two or three batons), and -Flat showers (shower turning to the left in a circle) ...............
Batton twirlers are comunity that is to be part of Staff Spinning and we can share a alot in the way of skills and language.
