The presenter will be Linda Alford, Director and Coach for the Dynamics.

Linda developed a passion for baton twirling at a young age. She started the Dynamics in 1976. Their first performance was a bicentennial parade on July 4th. Under Linda’s direction, they competed locally in C.A.M.A. (Capital Area Marching Association) winning many championship titles. In 1988, they won their first national title, NBTA Tiny Tot Small Grand National Dance Twirl Team. In 1993, the Dynamics won their first world title in Marseilles, France by capturing the Senior Dance Twirl Team gold medal at the NBTA World Championships. The team has gone on from there, continuing to win many national titles, 9 world titles, and produce a number of individual champions as well.

Linda continues to do what she loves as director of the Dynamics. In addition to being the coach of a national and world acclaimed team, she also works for the Howard County Public School System in their main offices. She shared her love of twirling with her three daughters, Deena, Stacey, and Kristi. Between the three girls they have won five Miss Majorette of America titles, two Grand National Twirling Championships, and two individual World Championship titles. All three have also gone on to be Dynamic coaches. Now granddaughter, Kaitlyn Boyer continues the family tradition as a member of the team. She competed in her first World Championships in Belgium in the pre-teen duet division and won the gold medal with partner and teammate Brianna Rohrer.
