Lyndsay’s Allen County Twirlers (Lyndsay’s ACT) is an after school youth arts program consisting of education in baton twirling, dance, and pompon/cheer in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Lyndsay’s ACT has been established in our community since 1999 under the directorship of Lyndsay Buesching-Lee. Hundreds of girls participate year-after-year; and, since it’s founding thousands of girls have participated in this program!

Lyndsay’s ACT consists of recreational groups and competition teams. The competitive teams have won awards on a regional level and our advanced travel teams have accumulated several National Championships!

The Lyndsay’s ACT program is designed to teach young people more than performing art skills. Students learn life, social, physical, and mental skills. Our students have fun in a structured, organized, and positive atmosphere. The goal is to help young people develop self-esteem, confidence, learn the importance of respect and teamwork. Our volunteerism initiatives teach our students the values of servanthood and thankfulness.
