The Billerettes are a majorette
troupe with a difference, apart from the occasional girl the rest
of the team may dress like girl majorettes, may even look like girl
majorettes, but they are most definitely men.
The guys have been proving for
years that when it comes to majoretting the guys can show the girls
how to give it that special ZING, well at least they hope to bring
a smile to the faces of the onlooker and preferably a good old belly
years ago Billerette founder and leader, Bill Weston was watching
a carnival parade pass by in his hometown of Buxton, Derbyshire.
He soon found himself plunging into the depths of depression by
the apathy on the faces of the column after column of girl Majorettes
and girls Morris teams that paraded by. They had obviously forgotten
what carnival is meant to be, fun, fun, fun. Bill decided that a
change was needed and felt confident that men could show the girls
just what entertainment is all about.
That was the start of what
has become a LEGEND IN THEIR OWN LIFETIME.
