Coastal Carolina University's Coastal Glamour Twirlers won the South Carolina state title in the Dance Twirl division at a competition held recently in Pawleys Island.

Dance Twirl, according to coach Laura Card, is musical interpretation through continuous dance while twirling the baton. The Coastal Glamour Twirlers performed a jazz-style routine, complete with advanced, dynamic baton exchanges and difficult dance and baton trick combinations. Twirlers on the team are CCU students Andi Hogg, Meaghan Place, Jill Stanley, Nikki Smargiasso, Kaitlyn Eckert and Alicia Smith.

Place and Stanley also won the state title in Duet, in which two baton twirlers perform simultaneously while employing exchanges and combinations uniquely designed for a duet.

The Coastal Glamour Twirlers, along with the Coastal Colorguard and Coastalette Dance Team, perform with the Spirit of the Chanticleer Marching Band throughout football season.
