World Champion Baton Twirler Stacy Singer


I am always impressed and admiring of any kind of performer, musical or otherwise, who demonstrates a high level of commitment to developing an expressive, skillful, and breathtaking performance. This video demonstrates all of those qualities in spades.

 

Stacy Singer is originally from Canada. This video is a recording of her winning performance as a junior soloist at the World Baton Twirling Federation World Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1989. She was 12 years old at the time. She is currently a botanist working for the U.S. Department of Agrigulture [link]

 

Not only is her precision and athleticism impressive, but she obviously worked very hard on timing her catches and expressive presentation to match the music. Often, solo baton twirlers' presentations are just a series of impressive tricks that have little integration with the music. Stacy's work here is an exception to that tendency. Enjoy.

Though Stacy was only a year older then I watching her at Canadians every year with such aw, she was inspiring to watch. Even now when I look back on those performances they still give me goose bumps. I only wish I had the opportunity to tell her directly.
