Colorado Rhythmics  - Rhythmic Gymnastics School

Rhythmic gymnastics is a sport that combines gymnastics and dance with the artistic and skillful use of hand-held apparatuses. The concept of rhythmic gymnastics has been around since the 1800s, but has developed into a full-fledged Olympic sport since conception. Officially recognized for the first time as modern gymnastics in 1961, it later became and remained known as rhythmic gymnastics. The first World Championship for the sport was held in 1963, but wasn’t added to the Olympic competitions until 1984 as an individual sport. In the 1996 Summer, a group competition category was added to rhythmic gymnastics. As of 2007, rhythmic gymnastics remains a sport primarily participated in by women, but some countries have developed a male-based interest in the sport. Whether performing as an individual or a group, gymnasts must employ the use of one or more hand-held apparatuses used in the sport. These include clubs, balls, hoops, ribbons, and rope. Competitors combine various elements of gymnastics and dance while simultaneously manipulating an apparatus.

Rhythmic Gymnastics is an amazing sport to help children develop good health both physical and mental. Children will receive not only physical benefits like increased body flexibility, muscle strength, hand-eye coordination but also mental benefits like creativity, imagination and positive thinking, subjective and objective analysis ability. Children will grow their artistic sense by expressing their emotion through music using apparatus like ribbon, hoop, rope, ball and clubs.
