Rhythmic Gymnastics

Rhythmic Gymnastics

Rhythmic Gymnastics is the fusion of art and sport combined with dance elements, ballet and music and will take place in National Gymnastics Arena (NGA). It is a true women's sport and belongs to the most attractive and beautiful disciplines. The main characteristic of Rhythmic Gymnastics as a compositional discipline is the connection of the most difficult acrobatic movement elements which require a very high corporal flexibility and motor activity and which are presented by the gymnasts in perfect harmony with the music chosen for the exercise.

Femininity and elegance as well as the artistic expression of the gymnasts never fail to fascinate the public.
