The Illumination Twirlers, from Ridgewood NJ, have performed at numerous community and charity events for over 25 years. Our current Illumination Team has traveled extensively across the U.S. to compete in meets sponsored by the United States Twirling Association. They hold state, regional and national titles including an AA National Team Championship. In 2008, the girls performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as members of the All Star Twirlers. The girls also compete in a wide variety of individual events including Dance Twirl, 2 Baton Twirling, 3 Baton Twirling and Freestyle. They are accomplished in many areas. Illumination featured performer, Catherine Ramirez, is a five time national twirling champion and will represent the United States at the World Baton Twirling Championship in Norway in August.  Upon her return she will join the University of South Carolina Marching Band as the Feature Twirler. Illumination is under the direction of Patti Lynn Wojtowicz.

Baton Twirling improves coordination, physical fitness & quick thinking. Twirling is a fun, social activity that builds self-confidence, leadership, responsibility, & teamwork. The Illumination Recreation Programs provide students, age 5 and over, a fun and exciting opportunity to learn how to twirl. Classes incorporate twirling and dance with an emphasis on developing coordination, flexibility, poise, and musicality.
