What is Rhythmic Gymnastics?
Rhythmic gymnastics is an Olympic sport that combines the flexibility and dynamics of gymnastics, the elegance of ballet and the rhythm and self expression of dance with the handling of small equipment such as ribbon, ball, rope, hoop and clubs. Gymnasts perform on a carpet to different styles of music either individually or in a group of five. The apparatus is fully integrated in the routine and it must be used with both hands, thrown into the air and kept in motion. Choreography involves a high degree of athletic skills: dazzling tosses and difficult catches combined with high leaps, jumps, amazing flexibilities, creative apparatus movements, difficult balances and gracious pirouettes.
