ABOUT RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS
Rhythmic gymnastics is a beautiful, graceful yet challenging sport which helps develop flexibility, clean elegant lines and beautiful body techniques. Take part in a dynamic and compelling female Olympic Sport that promotes physical fitness, confidence, good posture, elegance, strength, flexibility, coordination, balance and endurance.
Rhythmic gymnastics combines the athletic grace of artistic gymnastics and ballet through choreographed dance and performance with colorful ribbons, balls, hoops, ropes and clubs. Routines performed to music (60 to 90 sec) must show high leaps and jumps, multiple turns, balances, acrobatic elements, and flexibility. These skills must be performed in combination with constant movement of the apparatus, requiring body/hand-eye coordination.
Rhythmic gymnastics also helps girls develop life skills including work ethic, time management, organization, discipline, and much more.
