RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS

RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS

Rhythmic Gymnastics is a unique combination of gymnastics elements, strength, flexibility, dance, and grace. Rhythmic teams perform carefully choreographed routines to music and while using various apparatus – ropes, balls, hoops, ribbons, and clubs. The beauty of rhythmic gymnastics is achieved by harmoniously blending grace and strength with music and self-expression.

This is a beginner class geared towards older children that have never done rhythmic gymnastics before. These classes are designed to build from one class to the next and add new elements and progressions from one session to the next. Although this is a recreational program, there is a focus on the proper technique and skills needed to work with hoops, ropes, balls, and ribbons. These classes will also work on flexibility, balance, and coordination essential to rhythmic gymnastics. Our main goal is for students to have fun as they become stronger, healthier, and more confident in their abilities.
