“Plasticity and grace”
Children are full of energy. Our kids's gymnastic classes will help to direct this energy in the most positive direction. By providing daily physical activity as a core component of early education, gymnastics can challenge the child's body. Gymnastics classes include all aspects of agility, balance and coordination and require fluid body movements. They allow each child to strengthen the muscles of the core. Let us encourage your child to be more physically active in a fun way.
Rhythmic gymnastics for children is the most suitable sport for the physical and aesthetic development of girls. It is a performance of various combinations accompanied by music, which consists of plastic and dynamic gymnastics, dance and acrobatic exercises with and without an object (ribbon, ball, hoop, jump rope).
Rhythmic gymnastics creates a harmonious development of the children's body (beautiful figure, correct posture, developed musculature), as well as promotes the child's aesthetic education. It nurtures taste, the child learns to feel the music, psychologically liberated. During the lessons, the child develops vital motor skills and abilities (business and sports - dexterity, strength, endurance associated with performing complex acrobatic movements), acquires special knowledge, cultivates moral and wilful qualities.
Gymnastics is closely related to ballet, thanks to this connection, culture and fine coordination of movements, their expressiveness, plasticity, grace, sense of rhythm and artistry are developed. Classical choreography, as the basis of any dance, not only develops stretching and flexibility in all its forms (passive, active, extremely developed flexibility in the hip joints), but also includes strength loads, helping to straighten the back on a daily basis, not to lift the shoulders, lift the chin, etc.
Elements of acrobatics will teach you to orientate precisely in space, develop vestibular stability and self-assurance skills, and the child will become brave and decisive. Children develop memory due to the large amount of motor activity, complex structures and techniques. Rhythmic gymnastics exercises develop and strengthen the strength of the child's body's cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
