Rhythmic Gymnastics is a graceful sport that combines dance, acrobatics and gymnastics and develops coordination, strength, balance, flexibility, posture and musicality. It can build self-esteem and improve skills such as self-discipline, concentration and most importantly team spirit. Girls learn apparatus handling skills through their work with ball, hoop, clubs, rope and ribbon. Our gymnasts compete in club competitions in Melbourne, the Victorian Championships and Groups Victoria Championships. Gymnasts may also be selected to represent Victoria at the Australian Gymnastics Championships. Rhythmic Gymnastics is open to all year levels.
Levels and Time Commitment
Classes are structured for enjoyment and students learn and progress at their own individual rate. Progress from one class to another is primarily driven by individual maturity and skill level. Participation ranges from one hour per week for beginners to 10 hours per week for our Level 4 –10 gymnasts. Please note that enrolment is presumed for the whole year.
As a member of Gymnastics Australia, we follow the Australian national levels code. Strathcona offers the national stream (Levels 1 – 10) but not international stream which leads to junior and senior international competition.
Strathcona Students enrol via MyStrathcona for a period of a year. A Strathcona Rhythmic Gymnastic Enrolment Form will need to be completed and signed and returned to the Strathcona Reception for non-Strathcona students.
