About us

TRAINING        ...has been adjusted to keep covid-safe  


We have dance practice at Caryford Hall, Castle Cary,  FRIDAYS from 7pm for juniors and 8pm for the seniors.    Only £2 per session.  


We welcome new recruits from aged 6 years and upwards, with no previous experience necessary.



Here the Castle Cary Cygnets Majorettes aim to provide girls with technical dance and baton twirling skills using pompoms, flags, batons and illuminated batons within a fun and friendly motivated group enhancing teamwork and individual self-confidence.  We have won numerous awards, which is a big achievement from a small team.


 Throughout the years we have had various award winning dance routines and uniforms, all of which have been specifically designed and taylor-made, making them unique to the Cygnets which have inspired others, continuing our reputation of being a well-dressed troupe.


We are a non-profit making youth group, run purely by volunteers, so we like to keep running costs low as we rely upon various fundraising and donations.  


If you are hosting an event and would like the Castle Cary Cygnets Majorettes to do a display and entertain your audience, then please contact us to arrange details.



The Castle Cary Cygnets Majorettes were founded in 1981, with about 35 regular members.


Our troupe was named Cygnets after the town's swans

that were traditional residents in the horsepond

(not the pub opposite!)


Our troupe colours are Red and White, wearing our home town colour of red.  The local football and rugby clubs sporting red and black.


In the past the majorettes have taken part in a variety of events, they started with local fetes which progressed to carnivals, and competitions amongst other majorette troupes, also starred in stageshows and amature theatrical productions, and have gone international with exchange visits to France.
