Majorette (dancer)

A majorette is a female dancer while a male is called a "major", doing choreographed dance or movement, primarily baton twirling associated with marching bands during parades. Majorettes can also spin knives, fire knives, flags, light-up batons, rifles, maces and fire batons. They do illusions, cartwheels, and flips, and sometimes twirl up to four batons at a time. Majorettes are often confused with cheerleaders; baton twirling is more closely related to rhythmic gymnastics than to cheerleading.

Majorettes in an American High School

The "Major" in Drum Major resulted in the term Majorettes which gives a sole idea of what Majorettes are. Drum Majors conduct the marching band using their maces, while Majorettes march behind them and twirl a baton.
