Recreational

The Recreational stream is offered to those who want to experience the FUN of Rhythmic Gymnastics (RG).
The main focus is to introduce girls and women to this wonderful and graceful sport through weekly classes over three 10-12 week sessions (Fall, Winter & Spring). You can register for just one session or for the whole year!

All classes incorporate a small introduction to ballet, warm-up, stretching, musicality, coordination practice, and light acrobatics. Each week we practice with a new Rhythmic Gymnastics hand-apparatus (balls, hoops, ropes, ribbons, and scarves) and learn both basic object manipulation and gymnastics-specific skills! We focus on the Active Start 4 Life program as well as Long-Term Athlete Development.

Winter Show (Dec) & Year End Show (June): Our recreational gymnasts perform with unique choreographies, mastering the skills they have learned throughout the session. We will follow current health & safety advice on whether these Shows will either be held as usual or if we will have mini-shows for Family & Friends on the last day of regular classes.

See full description of classes below.

Additional Protective Measures during Covid-19

  • To facilitate cleaning and physical distancing, classes have been scheduled to allow a 5-10min break in between groups.
  • Our ERGC Rhythmic Gymnastics Carpets will be cleaned according to the RGA Carpet Sanitization Guidelines.
  • ERGC Apparatus used for recreational classes (balls, hoops, ropes, ribbons, and scarves) will be sanitized between groups and alternated so that no two back-to-back groups use the same apparatus within a 24-hour period
