The sport of rhythmic gymnastics entails patience and perseverance as it takes time for all gymnasts to master the skills and techniques required to qualify for the competitive program.  At this early level, we request parents to be very supportive of their child.  The coaching staff determines subsequent advancement.

 

Summer camp is a great way to introduce the recreational program, to meet new friends, and to have lots of fun!
