Rhythmic gymnastics is a female Olympic sport, which combines a unique mixture of dance, art and music. The sport develops a great variety of skills - flexibility, agility, strength, endurance, posture. Rhythmic routines consist of elements from classical ballet, modern dance and acrobatic movements.
Our classes are an excellent addition to any child’s healthy lifestyle. Rhythmic gymnastics is a high intensity sport. Gymnasts burn calories throughout the training session, the conditioning exercises help them gain muscle tone and develop balancing skills, while stretching and active exercises improve their flexibility. At the same time children’s coordination skills are challenged and improved via apparatus work – ball, hoop, rope, clubs and ribbon. Even when performed recreationally, the foundation of skills gained from gymnastics can be applied in multiple other sports and social situations, which require commitment, discipline, teamwork and leadership skills.
Rhythmic gymnasts learn how to express themselves to the public through elegant and graceful movements, while showing advanced apparatus work. The virtuosity, flexibility and agility of the gymnast at intermediate and advanced level are truly impressive and always awe the viewer.
Rhythmic gymnastics is the ultimate sport for any girl wishing to have the grace and beauty of a ballet dancer and athleticism of a gymnast.
