San Diego School of Rhythmic Gymnastics is currently offering the following programs:
Our Introduction to Rhythmic Gymnastics program was designed to introduce children to Rhythmic
Gymnastics and to help them to find out what this sport is all about. Classes' curriculum combines
elements of dance, physical and musical education, and ballet together to form a single entity, that
serves as a foundation for basic skills development for all sports and such forms of arts as dance,
ballet, and music. This class is focused on development of basic locomotor and pre acrobatic skills,
flexibility, strength, balance, muscular and cardiovascular endurance, good posture and coordination,
sense of rhythms and music. Children learn body awareness and self-esteem through gymnastic
exercises. We are using colorful balls, hoops, ropes, ribbons, and scarves to develop eye-hand
coordination. We are teaching colors, numbers, and letters by incorporating them in class activities.
Music is included as an integrated part in each class curriculum.
