Listen to how the music pauses in anticipation as the baton lands back in the twirler’s hand, or the way the beat pops at every pronounced step. Music is to twirling what butter is to popcorn— that essential addition that brings it all together as a proper duo. Picking the right music for the message you’re trying to convey, whether it’s “look at me!” or “sit back and be mesmerized,” should be just as important as the steps themselves. Consider what suits you most and what matches your current twirling level. Something too fast is bound to be difficult to keep up with if you’re just starting out. However, something too slow might not captivate your audience as much. Gage your audience; twirl to popular music to get the crowd on their feet. During marching routines, rely on a strong beat to get everyone’s blood pumping. When competing, make sure that a song is chosen that has plenty of opportune moments where your twirling tricks can be performed. Have a well-paced rhythm and beat that suits your style. Let the music shine a light on the intricacies of your art, it will emphasize your performance — so take your time when picking the best match.
