A majorette is a baton twirler whose twirling performance is often accompanied by dance, movement, or gymnastics, they are primarily associated with marching bands during parades. Majorettes can also spin knives, fire knives, flags, light-up batons, fire batons, maces and rifles. They do illusions, cartwheels, and flips, and sometimes twirl up to four batons at a time. Majorettes are often confused with cheerleaders, baton twirling, however, is more closely related to rhythmic gymnastics than to cheerleading. Origin and development Majorettes performed originally a typical carnival dance originating in the Rhineland, where the young women who perform this dance are called Tanzmariechen (Dance Marys) in German or Dansmarietjes in Dutch. During the carnival the normal form of government is parodied. Also the army and the defense forces were traditionally parodied as a way of protesting against the Prussian occupation of the Rhenish area at the time. In Cologne, these imitations arose in particular to make Prussian militarism look ridiculous. And with a joke army that did just about everything, it would make a normal company look ridiculous. The tanzmariechen show clear origins in the camp followers in the 18th and 19th century, and have a vibrant and eventful past.
