Majorettes are young girls and women parading in uniforms and twirling the baton (stab) in specific choreographies. At the end of the 19th century the first female marching bands were led by female drum majors. With time they established twirling their baton and by the 1940s there were whole girl groups doing so during parades. In the 1970s and 1980s twirling even came up as a type of sport.

"Marine Majoretten Marsch" (March of the Marine Majorettes) by Pavel Stanék is a typically American parade march in six-eight-time and you can perfectly image a group of marching majorettes in their neat uniforms artistically twirling their batons.

Pavel Stanék was born in 1927 in Prague. He finished his studies at the conservatory there, in 1950, and from this year up to 1954 he was conductor of the Folk Ensemble. During his military service he conducted the Central Band of the Ministery of the Interior and was their director and artistic leader almost for almost six years. From 1961 to 1963 he was conductor of the light opera theatre "Na Fidlovacce" and in 1963 he was appointed as director of the Ostrava Radio Orchestra, until 1990. During this period and after he was often invited as guest conductor. As a composer, Pavel Stanék influenced the development of wind music by his extraordinary compositions. He was often inspired by folk music of his homeland.
