Rhythmic Gymnastics is an Olympic sport which eloquently combines the
beauty and grace of dance with the agility and dexterity of gymnastics.
Rhythmic gymnasts use hand apparatus such as ribbon, rope, hoop, ball and
clubs, which are constantly in motion, synchronized with their body movements.
This competitive sport and beautiful art form is designed specifically
for girls and includes individual and group routines.
