Clonmel Majorettes open for registration

Published 12 months ago 29th August 2021 by Editor

Clonmel Majorettes are preparing to welcome all their brilliant performers back and are now open for registration.

Clonmel Majorettes was established in 1990 by sisters Marcella and Clare Houlihan who were both members of Banna Chluain Meala Colour Guard section.

Both Marcella and Clare enjoyed performing and competing and went on to gain their teaching qualifications under the International Baton Twirling Association. They began teaching majorettes classes in the Sisters of Charity Primary School in Clonmel and just one year later were delighted to open up their classes to pupils from all schools in the locality.

Set in a positive and encouraging environment, Clonmel Majorettes teach girls from 3yrs to 18yrs with an emphasis on developing coordination, posture and confidence in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

In 2008 Emma Browne came on board and has added a wealth of knowledge and know- how to Clonmel Majorettes, adding a fresh teaching approach rooted in a passion for creating a fun and enjoyable atmosphere for every young girl. The Majorettes class is dance based and each year the girls march in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade as well as performing in our annual dance show.

We endeavour to include various forms of movement, from marching and cheerleading to lyrical and modern dance.
Many of our girls will also take baton twirling classes, developing skills to a very high standard.
We have had major success in baton twirling over the years, representing Ireland in competitions in Holland, Switzerland, Scotland and Rome.

Our senior girls combine with Cahir Majorettes and Cashel Modern Dance Group to form a Tipperary squad who perform every second year in Disneyland, Paris. This provides a wonderful opportunity to perform with the Disney Performing Arts Team in a professional environment.

It requires a lot of hard work and dedication to get through the auditioning process but an experience and challenge the girls relish.
