Ole Miss Band – The Pride of the South

University of Mississippi

The Ole Miss Feature Twirlers have been an integral component of the Ole Miss Marching Band for decades.  They bring excitement and a visual flare that is stunning and brilliant.  Our feature twirlers are among the best in the world, and have competed and performed at the highest levels.

The feature twirlers boast their skills on game days at Ole Miss during the band’s pregame and halftime shows.  The feature twirlers also can be seen during parades and other events.  We are very excited to have such a great history of amazing performers who have been and are currently feature twirlers with the Ole Miss Band.

Please see the information below to learn about joining the Ole Miss Band as one of our feature twirlers!
