Age appropriate equipment is used, and more intricate skills and routines are added as children advance. At the end of each year, coaches evaluate the progress of each child, and recommend the program for next season. Many recreational gymnasts will advance to higher levels classes. It is in these classes that the first “Beginners” or “REC 1-2” and love for movement is inserted into young gymnasts. Rhythmic gymnastics is the safest and most fun sport to develop good posture, co-ordination, flexibility, balance and self-confidence.
Thousands of gymnasts of all ages have enrolled in Rose City Rhythmic recreational classes over the years. Many of them have progressed through into competitive programs. A few have gone on to become competitive champions and Olympians, but all enjoy the fun and friendship they have experienced.
