We bring together a highly skilled team of specialists including former National Team Member Clara Bernier, Rachel Little, athletic therapist, Katie Thacker and Brando Sherbrooke, acro yoga Instructors
Our recreational and preschool programs are created to develop a love for the sport of rhythmic gymnastics and teach the kids basic skills in a challenging yet high-success situation. Our highly skilled certified coaches demonstrate movements and progressively increase the difficulty and challenge for each participant in the class based on their abilities and strengths.
At Island Rhythmics, we believe in having fun while learning life skills through the sport that our athletes will carry with them through their lives. Lessons such as focus, determination and “working smart”. Working smart is a process that trains body awareness and focus and ultimately has the goal of attempting to improve every time a skill is performed.
We also believe that Rhythmic Gymnastics is more than a sport. It is an art. An art that allows all our athletes, regardless of their abilities, to express an emotion. We work on musicality and expression while working on the physical abilities required to perform the routines. The basic skills and abilities we train are a brush with which the athletes paint a picture for the audience in their routines.
Our coaches have also taught in many of the recreation centers in Victoria including Gordon Head Recreation Center, Commonwealth Place, Henderson Recreation Center, Juan De Fuca Recreation Center. Our competitive team of athletes included many Vancouver Island Championship medalists, Provincial Championship participants, BC Games participants, National Championships qualifiers and international invitational medalists.
