Hey, dancers. It's Megan. I hope you're all having a wonderful season so far. This month is my featured month, and I'm looking forward to telling you all about my dancing and twirling career. I started dancing and twirling recreationally when I was only 2 years old, however my very first time competing was at the age of 3. The studio I dance and twirl baton with is run by my Mom, which is called Stars United Baton Club. My baton club incorporates all genres of dance into our routines. My three favourite styles of dance are Jazz, Musical Theatre, and Contemporary. Although it can be difficult to juggle dance, twirling, school and my social life, 

I know I'll always have my supportive Mom to help me stay on track. My baton club is getting ready to travel to Italy for the World Baton Twirling Championships. I will be competing in two events -- Duet and a Team. I'm also the alternate in three other events, as well. I'm so excited to travel half way across the world and represent my country and my sport! I can't wait to see what the future holds for not only myself, but my amazing team. Good luck to all you fellow dancers this season!

How many hours a week do you dance/twirl?
I dance and twirl baton approximatley 18 hours a week, plus competitions and extra make-up lessons. 

Why do you love dance and baton?
I love competing, whether it be for dance or baton being able to perform in front of hundreds of people. 

What has been your favourite moment so far
My favourite thing that my team and I have done this season was the Newmarket Santa Clause Parade where we twirled and dance for everyone.

Stars United Baton Club has been twirling in York Region area for over 43 years.  What started out as recreation club participating in Local Santa Claus and July 1 parades along with a few Grey Cup Parades along the way has now become an Internationally respected and Championships twirling team.

The Stars United Baton Club was formerly called Richvale Lions Majorettes and Progress Yorkettes, in 2007 twirling member and coach Satyne Ward, took over the club and new generation began under the title STARS UNITED, because we feel all Stars Unite to create lasting memories, friendships and moments.  One Star is beautiful but a galaxy of Stars can light your path to anywhere!


We work on developing basic dance, gymnastic and twirling technique through our recreation programs and new this year we have brought twirling into the Schools with our LUNCH TIME TWIRL program offered to all York Region Public schools.  Currently we have 5 programs in various schools and we look forward to sharing our sport with so many.

At the end of this month 14 young ladies ranging in age from 9-26 will be representing Canada at the WFNBTA World Baton Championships in Lignano Sabbadro, Italy for 9 days!  Baton allows young girls of all shapes and sizes to dream big.  Working together as a team is a must in our sport and we love sharing our wonderful sport and our wonderful memories with new stars every week! We wish our Gabie's "Girl" Megan Ward special congrats as she is a member of our National Junior Team in several events in Italy!  Come on out it's not as hard as you may think, but the rewards will last forever.

Classes are held weekly in Newmarket and Richmond Hill areas for more info please contact us anytime.  Special Thanks to Gabie's who has always embraced our unique club and made them to feel and look like Champions!
