Moms, it is time to shine up your old baton, pass it down to the next generation and sign your child up for twirling lessons.
Twirl Time is celebrating its 10th year and is getting ready to begin classes on Aug. 4.
Owner and instructor Angie Shelly said early bird registration starts on July 28 at the Byrneville Community Center from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.
She added that everyone who registers this date will receive two things for free.
Classes are offered for kids in preschool through teenagers in high school and run from beginner to advanced.
Shelly said that all types of twirling are taught to each level of classes including dance twirl, one, two and three batons, hoops, fire batons and knives.
She added that tumbling is also beneficial to twirling.
Twirlers will do more than take classes at Twirl Time as they will get to perform a spring recital and also compete in competitions on a state and regional level.
The students of Twirl Time will also perform at Mayfest, a Christmas parade and hold a spring recital in March.
Shelly said that the students of Twirl Time have won several competitions in the last few years.
She added that the recital will be held in one of the local school auditoriums.
Registration for Twirl Time costs $5. For more information, contact Angie Shelly at 251-446-7443.
