Group Dance Gymnastics
January 15 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Join Island Rhythmics for our open class and learn about group dance gymnastics and gymnaestrada.
– play games aimed at increasing abilities like spacial awareness, coordination, musicality strength, flexibility and more
– learn some gymnastics basics. Our team is certified in both rhythmic and artistic gymnastics so you will get a taste of both sports. All the skills will have progressions and adaptations built in so every participant will be safe, and successful
– Put together a short routine with some of the skills we learned together
– learn a little bit about the gymnastics festivals called gymnaestradas. Gymnaestradas are non-competitive, large group routine festivals that celebrate movement in all its forms. There are provincial, national and even world festivals that participants can take part in.
This class is open to all ages and abilities. Gymnaestrada is by definition a celebration of dance, gymnastics and movement for all ages and abilities. Participants range in age from 6 years old to 99 plus! No experience? No problem! Our coaches design programs to be fully inclusive and accessible to all.
Stay a little longer after class and watch our team that is preparing to perform at the World Gymnaerstrda in Amsterdam this summer!
