Rhythmic gymnastics combines ballet, body skills and creative movements with music, while working with ribbons, balls, hoops, ropes and clubs in a choreographed dance-and-tumble routine. There are two different disciplines, individual and groups.
An individual gymnast competes with four different routines, using a different piece of apparatus and music for each of them. Every four years (Olympic cycle) one piece of apparatus gets excluded of the competition program.
Groups are made up of 5 gymnasts (+2 reserves) and they perform 2 routines As for individual gymnasts it will depend on the Olympic cycle which pieces of apparatus they use in their performances.
It has taken a little while to get Rhythmic Gymnastics up and running in London, but we are pleased to now offer a number of competitions. We would welcome your interest to help grow this discipline within London.
