The new year has arrived, and itís the perfect time to set goals for yourself. Mastering the art of baton twirling requires years of practice and dedication, so make sure to set realistic goals for this year. Think about what you really want out of your baton twirling practice that you can do as you wait impatiently for in-person baton twirling events to return. Master New Tricks Now that you are spending more time at home, set time aside to learn tricks that you were afraid to try before. Watch video tutorials to see how the pros do the tricks you are interested in trying. Make sure you are not too close to windows, ceiling fans, or expensive vases, and try these moves yourself. Donít worry about how it looks when youíre just starting to learn it. No oneís watching anyway, except maybe your dog. Practice Flexibility This might just be the year to take up a new hobby, like yoga. When all your time is not being occupied by practicing for a big event, take some time to work on increasing your flexibility. Follow along with yoga or stretching videos online, or if youíre comfortable with it, consider taking in-person classes. Just like twirling, itís always easier to practice with others, even if the others are with you over a video conference call. Buy Your Dream Baton While live performances are still on hold, do some research to find the perfect baton for your twirling practice. Whether you are looking for more of a classic baton, one in your favorite color, or one with LEDs, we can help. If this is your year to finally try fire baton twirling or experimenting with a hoop baton, we have batons for that, too. At Star Line Baton, we offer a variety of high-quality batons on our website.
