What is rhytmic gymnastics?
It is a markedly feminine sport in which body movements and exercises with the apparatus are artistically combined with music to make up the unity in the beauty of performing.Rhythmic gymnastics is an Olympic sport in which the routines are performed with 5 categories of apparatus: rope, hoop, ball, clubs and ribbon. The routines can be performed individually and in groups.
Through exercising we influence the girl’s development and improvement of series of motor skills (coordination, flexibility, strength, speed,agility).
