Island Rhythmics is a boutique gymnastics club located in beautiful Victoria BC. We offer nationally certified coaches and highly regarded specialists to offer a unique training experience.
We have classes for kids of all ages and abilities. Have a look at our classes and feel free to ask our coaches for a recommendation.
Our pre-school classes are created around learning basic skills and musical awareness. We will go over beginner apparatus skills with the rope, hoop, ball, ribbon, and scarves, and body elements such as pointed toes and straight knees and arms, as well as basic turns, balances, jumps and dance steps. Some of these skills will be incorporated into the session end show routine where we will combine the skills with music and expression.
Our recreational class develops apparatus skills with the rope, hoop, ball, ribbon, and scarves. Along with apparatus skills, we develop body skills and awareness through balance, turn, jump and dance techniques as well as challenge the participants with special awareness in relation to their peers. We will work with the abilities of each participant to ensure they are appropriately challenged throughout the classes and session. The skills learned in these classes will be incorporated with expression and musical awareness into a routine that will be performed at the session end show.
The performance group is designed for girls who have prior gymnastics or dance training that want to challenge themselves. This program is designed to refine and build on basic skills. More advanced skills will be introduced and more emphasis on musical awareness, expression, group work. These skills will be combined into group routines and performed at the session end show, and possibly other events in the community.
Days and times vary based on programs
