Halftime USA Camp: Summer 2020 Dates TBA
Grades 6th - 12th

Halftime USA Band Front Camps is the premiere training camp for all your band front auxiliary units. We have been training auxiliary units for over 48 years! Halftime USA camps offers training for majorettes and twirlers of all skill levels. Students not yet associated with a school line are welcome to attend as individuals.

Staff members have been selected from major college and university bands, dance lines and national champions with expertise in their particular field. Meet and work with a staff that has been there. Talk to them about what it's like to go out on the field for the first time before thousands of fans.

The camp at Auburn University will be run by Shirley Ross DeVenney. Shirley has had an outstanding career from grade school mascot, drum major, feature Twirler and choreographer for her high school band to feature twirler, captain and choreographer for the "Ole Miss" Rebellette Dance Team and professional performances with Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians, Stan Kenton and many others.

Material and routines choreographed by Shirley have been featured at many high school, university and bowl games. Shirley is the originator of the "Southern Style" of dance twirl. She developed many of to day's popular rolls as applied to solo baton routines. A former Mrs. Majorette of America, she is in that lofty position as one of the worlds outstanding female instructors.

Her students have won every major title there is to win in the twirling art/sport. Many can be found fronting a number of today's university bands and a number serve as university choreographers.

In July 2002 Shirley was inducted into the National Hall of Fame at a special ceremony at Notre Dame University.
