Calisthenics is a uniquely Australian performance based sport and in its modern format offers so much to participants, and caters for ages 3 through to adult. Different genres of music are the inspiration for calisthenics routines. Music is carefully selected to ensure that it is age appropriate, allows for rhythm and beat to be understood and for participants to enjoy performing their routines to it.
Calisthenics classes involve learning and developing gymnastics skills, ballet technique, strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, posture, poise, grace, acting, confidence, self-esteem, musical appreciation, friendships, resilience, and the opportunity to develop friendships (for children and families).
Calisthenics combines the best aspects of sport and performing arts and is uniquely Australian. It is a fabulous artistic sport for all age groups and promotes teamwork, self confidence and most of all fun!
It is a wonderful sport because it encompasses so many performance based skills and all this occurs in one class!
