Meet our instructors:
Patty Cochran, Instructor/Owner
Ms Cochran is a veteran instructor of 32 years. She began twirling the baton before she could barely walk. If there was a band playing nearby, her Mom and Dad knew they'd better take her SOON! Patty always loved the bands and some things just never change! 
Many of her students have become twirling instructors, professional cheerleaders in the NFL, professional models, and most importantly, well-rounded young ladies. Patty's students have won numerous awards in individual, duets, trios, teams, and corps on the local, state, regional, and mini-national levels.  Ms Cochran has also received the honor of being named Teacher of the Year by The National Majorette Association.
"Ms Patty" as her girls call her, is a dedicated and caring teacher to all of her students. Some would say she spoils the girls!
Shelia Clyburn, Instructor
Along with being the ABSOLUTE BEST Instructor, Shelia is also the official photographer for THE ALLSTARZ and the official sweat suit and team shirt designer! Most of the pictures you see on our site have been taken by her and we appreciate EVERYTHING she does for us and for Ms Patty. 
Ms Shelia begain twirling at the age of 11. She was also a member of the Princeton High School Majorettes. Shelia began helping Ms Patty with classes 4 years ago and is an AWESOME Instructor! Her love of twirling shows in class and at all performances. She ALWAYS has a smile for us!
