HUGS/ SPECIAL NEEDS RHYTHMIC PROGRAM (6 yrs & up)
Our newest rhythmic program, HUGS is a segment USA Gymnastics under Gymnastics for All, designed to offer a competitive or recreational rhythmic gymnastics program for athletes with special needs. This is a amazing opportunity for children with special needs to learn skills, over come challenges and build pride.
Classes are similar to our recreational Rhythmic Gymnastics classes, giving gymnasts the opportunity to improve their flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, musicality, and expression while learning the basic body and apparatus elements of rhythmic gymnastics. The children will learn the same apparatus elements and handling as our regular Team and Recreational Gymnasts.
All gymnasts will have the opportunity to learn short routines to music either individually or as a group and will be given the opportunity to participate in HUGS Rhythmic Gymnastics competitions and Special Olympics events as well as in house presentations.
Classes are 60 - 90min and are 1 - 2 times per week. Gymnasts are required to wear leotards, shorts or pants and prepare hair in a neat bun on top of their head.
