The Sport

Rhythmic Gymnastics is a beautiful Sport that combines dance and gymnastics.  Gymnasts express themselves through movement using various hand apparatus such as Ribbon, Hoop, Ball, Rope and Scarves.

 No previous experience is needed.  Gymnasts learn Rhythmic Gymnastic skills that are created into group routines.   A group goal is a performance in a Provincial event called a Gymnastrada in the spring or our spring show.

Rhythmic West classes include: warm-up, body technique, basic ballet, apparatus technique, routine practice, games and exploration time.  We build apparatus skills into a final performance for our spring show each year.
