The World Champion Red Star Twirlers of Derry, New Hampshire have twirled for:

The Boston Celtics, Radio Disney, Carnival Cruise lines, the Liberty and Sugar Bowl Games, and in hundreds of parades including the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, the Washington D.C. 4th of July and the Miss America Parade.

Demand for the Red Stars has taken the team all over the world including Germany, Russia, Ireland, Spain and the Czech Republic.  They have been featured in countless news articles and publications including the nationally distributed “Yankee Magazine” and were recently seen in thousands of households on the television show “Chronicle.” 

Red Star twirlers are twirling at college campuses across the country, at pageants where they consistently amaze the judges, at numerous charity events and even professionally at Busch Gardens!

Gina Hutchinson and The Red Star Twirlers congratulate Kaleigh McIver, Derry, NH for four years of leading the University of New Haven Marching Band. Kaleigh, daughter of Karen and Paul McIver, is a senior, majoring in forensic science.

The Newport, NH Tigerettes performed at the Newport/ Franklin football game and are now gearing up for  "A Classic Christmas" gala with the Derry Red Star Twirlers at the Newport Opera House on Dec. 6, 2014 at 7:00 PM. Coach Gina Hutchinson got a huge surprise as her former Towle High School Band Director, Robert Howard, came to Newport from Manchester to see her and the twirlers. They had not seen each other in 48 years! "Mr. Howard" had been a Drum Major and was a really good twirler, who taught twirling to the majorettes as well as directed the marching and concert bands. For years, Hutchinson has talked about him in interviews as an inspiration for the Class of 1966. He started his teaching career with her class and "graduated" with them as well. No one knew where he went. Turns out it was to Pentucket Regional in Groveland, Mass. where one of her current assistants went to school and only twenty miles from Gina's International Twirling Champions studio in Derry, The Red Stars.

Congratulations to Jaycie Greenberg, who twirled her final game at Windham High School. Jaycie plans to twirl in college and even had a photographer at the game (a former cheerleader for Florida State), tell her that they would love her there! Several "warm climate" colleges are on her list. Proud Mom, Frannie, and coach Gina Hutchinson enjoyed the final performance. Jaycie is also coached by KeriAnn Lynch.

 Miss  New Hampshire Scholarship Competition  2014

CONGRATULATIONS Jessica Avelar, for winning the Lisa Cripps Richer Humanitarian Award! After some disappointments in the pageant, this was the final award given. Jamie Staton WMUR-TV host choked up in awarding it. When he announced that it went to Jessica Avelar, it could not have been more perfect. That award describes this young woman perfectly and follows up on other such awards she has been given in twirling. As her coach and the choreographer of the routine she did not get to try again, I would not trade that one recognition for Jessica for a whole show of "Jessica twirling". My team is built on the importance of character and Jessica has always been the epitome of that.
Standing tall....that's what Jessica Avelar did in the final moments of Miss NH 2014.
