Rhythmic gymnastics is one of the most beautiful sports for girls. Girls who receive training in rhythmic gymnastics develop poise, confidence, and a strong body. It is a sport that combines elements of ballet, gymnastics, dance, and apparatus manipulation. Participants learn leaps, balances, pirouettes (pivots), apparatus handling, flexibility and dance. Rhythmic gymnastics involves a high degree of athletic skill that is learned in a level system of progression as outlined by USAG. Physical abilities needed by a rhythmic gymnast include strength, power, flexibility, agility, dexterity, endurance and hand-eye coordination.
Rhythmic gymnastics training at Vitrychenko Academy is led by Olympic Bronze medalist, Olena Vitrychenko, who shares her Olympic–level of experience and family’s legacy for excellence in the sport.
