Rhythmic gymnastics is a sport that combines elements of ballet, gymnastics, movement, and apparatus handling: Rope, Hoop, Ribbon, Ball, Club.
The choreography must cover the entire floor and contain a balance of jumps, leaps, pivots, balances and flexibility movements. Each movement involves a high degree of athletic skill. Physical ability is also needed by a rhythmic gymnast to include strength, power, flexibility, agility, dexterity, endurance and hand-eye coordination.
The British Gymnastics structure provides an opportunity for participation at all levels, starting with core proficiency badges, moving through Next Steps – first level of competitions, following onto Grades as part of a National Development Plan and competitions.
Rhythmic Gymnasts require the same classical turn out, movement and technique as a classical ballet dancer. Within the Rhythmic Ballet Technique syllabus there is everything a Rhythmic Gymnasts needs to develop the technique, strength and knowledge required to progress their rhythmic technique and dance ability further.
The exercises taught within each class helps the gymnast improve and advance their turn out, pose, flexibility, turns, elevation and foot/ankle/leg/core strength. The class focuses on exercises at the barre and centre work, all in which are designed around the requirements specifically for a rhythmic gymnast.
As well as improving technique the student will develop musicality and rhythm which combined with the classical technique helps mature the gymnast’s movement ability and performance when competing, performing or training.
There are different levels of RBT and once a level has been completed the student will be assessed internally by their instructor, once awarded they will then progress to the next level.
