Marching Auxiliaries of America was founded in 1976. Originally called “Majorettes of America,” MA began as a small camp company specializing in instruction for twirlers. Where camps in earlier years ranged in size from 35-100 participants, MA has now grown to as much as three or four hundred.

Today, MA camps cover the entire United States and has expanded from a predominantly summer business to a year-round operation. In addition to summer camp instruction, Marching Auxiliaries also conducts regional competitions and a nationals competition for flags, rifles and twirlers; and winter competitions for dance teams, flag corps, rifle lines, winter guards and majorettes. Since 1984, Marching Auxiliaries has received national and international acclaim with the advent of the All American Performance Team. The company has provided half time entertainment at numerous college bowl games, marched in prestigious parades and has been featured at several world fairs on three continents.
