FUN * FITNESS * FUNDAMENTALS
Rhythmic Gymnastics is an enjoyable and affordable sport that develops fitness, inspires creativity and enables every child to work at her own level.
Recreational rhythmic gymnastics offers a unique blend of music, movement and apparatus that challenges girls to discover their bodies’ capabilities, creativity and imagination to manipulate ribbons, balls, hoops, ropes and scarves in fun group classes.
All recreational programs at ARGO are structured for both beginners and those gymnasts who have participated recreationally. All programs offer basic to intermediate body and apparatus skill development and an introduction to fundamental gymnastics movement patterns. In addition, gymnasts will learn to coordinate apparatus with body movements to music. The focus of recreational programs is to introduce gymnasts to fundamental movement patterns of gymnastics and to give an opportunity to perform routines in front of an audience. All recreational classes will have the opportunity to perform at ARGO club displays.
All recreational programs will follow the PRISM Recreational Skills Development Program that develops basic rhythmic gymnastics skills in proper progression. At the end of each session the gymnasts will be rewarded with PRISM color-coded level ribbons. The PRISM program prepares gymnasts for participation in either the display or competitive programs.
