What is Calisthenics?
Calisthenics is the sport with performing at its heart.
We offer a unique combination of dancing, singing, gymnastics and technical skills for girls, boys and women throughout Victoria.
Calisthenics develops strong, confident performers through teamwork. Discipline and technique, grace and poise are fostered in a fun and friendly club environment, where families can connect and performers can develop skills, and friendships, that last a lifetime.
Our performers learn skills that inspire them to take centre stage at competitions, and in life.
Each unique team based item improves the overall health, fitness, strength and flexibility of performers, as well as offering skills and benefits to take into everyday life.
