Rhythmic Gymnastics: Ages 5-14 yrs


We have partnered with Sporty Princess Gymnastics School to bring the unique sport of Rhythmic Gymnastics to our Y, providing a special experience for young girls to be active, be creative, and build confidence. Nurturing both body and spirit, Rhythmic Gymnastics is a sport combining gymnastics, ballet, and dance with the use of hand-held apparatus, like balls, ribbons, and hoops This program is open to members and non-members.
