Louisiana Twirl Force
Susan Jullens- Owner/Director/Instructor/Choregrapher
I am so pleased to be a part of such an amazing group. I started my twirling career as a competition twirler. Upon graduating high school, I became an LSU Tigerette. I twirled at LSU from 1981-1983. After which I enjoyed working with several groups and private students. In 1992, I began an organization called Starsteppers which evolved into All- Star Twirl and Dance. I operated this studio for 15 years. In 2016, I began Louisiana Twirl Force and have been going strong. Our twirlers and color guard members enjoy performing in local events, competitions, parades, as well as our recital. I have worked with many twirlers and twirling groups including, Central Private, Silliman, Northwestern Middle, Lutcher High School, St. James High School, Ville Platte High School, Our Lady Of Lourdes Middle School, Walker High School, Denham Springs Junior High, Slaughter Charter School, All-Star Marching Camp, and many many more. I'm proud to say that I am the Louisiana State NBTA Contest Director and have personally taken it upon myself to help rebuild the sport of baton twirling in Louisiana.
