Rhythmic Gymnastics is one of the most beautiful and precise Olympic Sports. It is a combination of the dynamics and flexibility of gymnastics, the technical knowledge of ballet, and the self-expression and rhythm of modern dance. Unmatched for its elegant, expressive, precise and graceful movements, Rhythmic Gymnastics is using hand-held apparatus such as hoops, balls, ropes, ribbons, and clubs in specially choreographed rhythmic group and solo routines.
Through careful guidance, respectful encouragement and the highest standards of expert coaching, young girls in our program are developed into confident, strong and healthy young women.
The benefits of Rhythmic Gymnastics to girls in their formative years include physical fitness, self-discipline, positive self-esteem, lasting friendships, team skills, fun and a healthy lifestyle that the gymnast will sustain for life.
