Would you agree that majorettes are important in marching bands? The tradition was that majorettes are like promo girls who advertise their band that’s why they are positioned in the first part of the march. And although the band’s music can be heard even before the band comes into view, the first to be seen are the young, pretty girls in colorful uniforms. All they do is to play with the baton and nothing else but they do attract the attention of the public during the march. So I’d say that the majorette is a salient part of the marching band especially now that there are regional contests for majorettes.
