Recreational Rhythmic Gymnastics Program is designed for the joy and fun of movement. While developing skills within a non-competitive environment, young girls enhance their flexibility, strength, agility, coordination and musicality. All recreational classes are held once a week.
Beginners class is designed to introduce the students to basic gymnastics skills and apparatus handlings. Also young girls will learn to coordinate their movements with the rhythm and the character of the music. No previous experience is required. The length of the class is 1 hour.
Intermediate class is the first progressive level and is designed for the students who have mastered basic skills and strive to achieve a more advanced skill level. The students must accomplish at least one full year of training to move to this class. Length of the class is 2 hours.
Each year annual shows will be held for parents and friends where gymnasts can demonstrate their accomplishments.
Competitive Rhythmic Gymnastics Program is both challenging and rewarding for the gymnasts of age 6 and up. Gymnasts who demonstrate advanced achievements, high motivation and ability to work independently and in small groups will be evaluated by the coach and placed on the appropriate level. Competitive Levels 3-8 follow the guidelines of USA Gymnasics Junior Olympic Program. Girls will prepare and participate in State, Regional and National competitions. Gymnasts of the competitive team have to understand that without time commitment, efforts, discipline and hard work the success would not be achieved.
Levels 3-5 and Levels 6-8 classes are designed for the members of a competitive team.
Stretching & Conditioning lessons are available by request for gymnasts, cheerleaders, figure skaters, dancers, etc. These lessons are focused on enhancing flexibility and strength.
