The Benefits of Rhythmic Gymnastics
Rhythmic gymnastics is one of the most unique and beautiful Olympic Sports, but the benefits associated with this intensive activity begin long before a participant becomes an Olympian. By involving your daughter in the art of rhythmic gymnastics, she will gain so much more than physical flexibility and coordination. The combination of group learning and individual attention will provide unmatched benefits for the growth of your daughter – both physically and spiritually.
Rhythmic gymnastics combines aspects from complicated gymnastics, dance, and ballet. And then adds a ribbon, ball, hoop, rope, or club to the mix. To say this sport is physically challenging is an understatement – rhythmic gymnasts learn extreme balance & posture, muscle building, and flexibility.
The collaborative group aspect of rhythmic gymnastics provides a solid foundation in team skills, friendship, encouragement, and leadership. Additionally, if your daughter takes interest in one day competing, early exposure to this group environment is crucial in learning how to navigate competitive situations with empathy, tact, and confidence.
Rhythmic gymnasts learn to be highly creative and expressive, as this sport is so much more than a sport. The performativity aspect teaches a girl to be confident, dedicated, and precise. At LA School of Gymnastics, we also integrate the philosophy behind rhythmic gymnastics into our lesson plans. This way, the girls may get a well-rounded, holistic view of the sport and learn what it truly means. This activity is highly thought-provoking, artful, and beautiful.
