Panola College Continuing Education will be hosting a four
day twirling camp July 19-22. The camp is open to students K-12th grades
and will last from 8:30-12:30 each day. The campers should meet in the new
Charles C. Matthews Student Center and check in will begin at 8:00 each
day. The week will conclude with a showcase performance at 12:00 on Friday,
July 22. The performance will be held in the A.J. Johnson Gymnasium.
Participants will twirl to music from the 1930s to the present, with
classes available for beginner, intermediate and advanced twirlers.
“Former and current SFA Twirl-O-Jacks will be creating the choreography and
teaching routines,” coordinator Kimberly Ferguson said. “We’re really
excited about the wide range of music to choose from, and I’m having a lot
of fun creating and incorporating props into our routines. It should be
entertaining for the girls to learn and for the crowd to watch!”
Twirlers are encouraged to send photos of themselves along with fun facts
with their registration form or by email for a chance to be featured as the
#PCTSpotlight each week on social media. All students are required to bring
their own batons, but props will be provided, along with a performance
t-shirt for those who register before July 5. Early registration costs $50,
while registrants after the 5th will pay $75. Absolutely no registration
forms will be accepted after July 15th. To register, contact Kimberly
Ferguson at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 903-693-2094.
