Rhythmic Gymnastics


Formerly referred to as “rhythmic sportive gymnastics”, it is a sport-within-a-sport. This lively and eye-catching floor exercise spin-off showcases a gymnast’s flexibility and coordination. It incorporates dance and gymnastics, with the creative use of different apparatus like balls, hoops, ribbons, ropes or clubs in the routine.

A single gymnast, or even a group of up to five, pivot, leap and balance on the soft floor pad to musical accompaniment. This is a wonderfully imaginative way for gymnasts to integrate rhythm, balance and teamwork in the sport. Individual performances can last up to a minute and a half, while a team effort has the floor for up to two minutes and thirty seconds
