Concept Summary

Strut is a body dominant event with complimentary/enhancing baton work resulting in a fluid and expressive form of movement combined with the primary focus of the “in step” demand of the Forward Motion. Both body and baton demonstrate proper training and technique. Maximum amplitude of body work is the ultimate goal. It is performed to the strut music. Beauty, elegance, rhythm and the ability to travel while maintaining discipline to the beat of the music is paramount. Strut draws from many sources for its material; ballet, jazz, modern dance, gymnastics, ice skating, etc.
