Rhythmic Gymnastics (RG) is an Olympic sport in which individuals or groups of five manipulate one or two pieces of apparatus: rope, hoop, ball, clubs, ribbon and freehand (no apparatus). Rhythmic gymnastics is a sport that combines elements of ballet, gymnastics, dance, and apparatus manipulation. It requires focus, eye-hand coordination, flexibility, and a great commitment.
RG is a women only sport, which helps girls to develop team spirit. Also, being in a team and participating in competitions increases their motivation to be recognized for their effort and practice. RG requires hard training and discipline, which pays off by empowering girls turning them into strong women full of grace and personality with a positive self-image and attitude. Girls develop skills and experiences that have a life long impact on their lives. They have the chance to experience beautiful sparkling outfits, professional make-up and finally performing in front of an audience. A dream came true for many young girls!
