INSTRUCTOR BIO: EMILY R.

After attending a few high school football games as an elementary school student, I was inspired by my school’s marching band and majorette line. I instantly knew that I wanted to learn how to twirl baton.

I began twirling at age 12 and became a feature twirler for Locust Fork High School’s marching band. During this time, I won superior ratings and best in class at competitions. I also started my journey as a competitive twirler outside of marching band. I remained the feature twirler at my high school until I graduated in 2023.

I received a scholarship to twirl at Samford University for my Freshman year. I am still currently a student at Samford University studying for a Bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Science.

I am so excited to be helping my former high school coach, Ms. Sarah, teach and inspire other young girls who have an interest in twirling. I cannot wait to use this blessing of an opportunity to share my love and passion for this sport with others!
