World Baton Twirling Day

The WBTF Athletes’ Commission aim to increase awareness and participation in our beloved sport of Baton Twirling world-wide, by celebrating our annual World Baton Twirling Day on April 10! This year, more than ever, we encourage you to stand together and support the rest of our baton twirling family around the world during this difficult time.


Whether you are twirling for the first time, you are an x-professional, or anything inbetween, get involved with expressing your feelings during these uncertain times together with all baton twirlers in 2020. Follow our countdown and live videos on Instagram and Facebook.

How to participate:

1. Spread the word and begin making your creative plans to video your routine with this year's theme 'country colours'
2. Use the World Baton Twirling Day music and learn the routine choreography so we are all twirling together - adjust to suit your own pace and your home.
3. Add your own beginning (32counts) & ending (16counts) choreography to show your own style & ability - express yourself :)
4. Start and finish in the #apartbuttogether pose.
5. Perform and video your routine in any fun or creative way you choose.
6. Post your video on social media on April 10th use the hashtag #worldbatontwirlingday
7. Celebrate!

Join us and baton twirlers all over the globe coming together to spread the love of our sport. We look forward to celebrating our 4th annual day with fellow twirlers around the world and making April 10th a day to remember via online and offline media - remember to tell your local media about our movement in 2020 (see Media Release Template document below)
