What is Shelby Starlets?
We are a baton and dance studio which teaches basics in baton twirling and dance. Our
goal is to train girls in the basics of each, and as they progress, prepare
them for the next level, whether it be competition twirling, high school
majorette, or college majorette. We give the girls various performance
opportunities, including the Christmas Parade, a halftime performance at a High
School basketball game, and the Spring Recital.
What age groups do you teach?
We accept students entering Kindergarten, and offer classes for girls K-12 .
Where are classes held?
We meet at the following locations: The
Alabaster Studio, Creekview Elementary,
Meadow View Elementary,
Thompson Intermediate, Montevallo
Elementary, Helena Elementary, and Helena
How much to do classes cost?
Classes are 45.00 per month for Baton I,
II, III, IV at the Studio, and 50.00 for all
school site classes.
I don't have a baton- can I get one from you?
Yes, we order batons almost weekly. They cost
30.00 and can be ordered as soon
as we receive payment. This will include the tape for the batons. We can usually have batons in in about a week.
What is this about tape,caps, and cases?
All girls will need to have their baton/s taped once class begins. Cost is
2.00/baton. We will tape the baton/s for you in class. Baton 1 and 2 will have
the standard white/purple/pink tape, and Baton 3 and 4 will use grip tape.
Practice caps are 3.00/pair and come in a variety of colors. They are only for
practice and are used to keep the white baton tips clean. Caps are NOT
required. Baton cases are available in a variety of colors. Cases are NOT
required, but are useful for multiple batons. Cases range from 18.00-35.00.
What do the girls wear for class?
Comfortable clothing is a must. Baton 1 and 2 - no baggy, bulky clothes, no
dresses, skirts, dress shoes or flip flops. Hair pulled back. Baton 3 and 4-
jazz pants or stretch pants, tan cougar shoes, hair pulled back.
What other costs are involved?
There is a 25.00 fall registration fee, which includes a t-shirt. For the
Chistmas parade, you will purchase a top for your twirler to wear. We will
do a group order for later in the year. There is also the
costume, which we will wear in the parade and for the basketball performance and Spring Recital. Our 2008- 2009
costumes were 60.00 for all classes. Twirl Team costumes will vary in cost .
Costume money is due by October 1st. There is a 10.00 recital fee, due May 1st.
Finally, all girls (K - 5) who attend
classes at the schools MUST be registered with the Community Education Program,
which is done through the after school care program that the twirler attends.
This is a yearly (August-August) fee of 25.00, payable to Jamie Wilson.
And I will forward the payments to the ASCP office. Paperwork is
available at the front desk of all schools, or from our website.
