This is footage of parades and majorettes in action. Individual majorettes describe the benefits of being a majorette, which include show business careers, scholarships and travel. A coach describes the qualities needed to be a good majorette. There is footage of techniques and trick moves. Former majorette Darlene Enlow says that one needs "energy, figure and complexion" in order to be a majorette. Many twirlers perform throughout the film. Thirty-six twirlers perform to the Orange Juice song and form the letters "O.J." at the end of the film.
