Gymnaestrada 7+ yrs
GYMNAESTRADA: 7 to 70 yrs
Gymnaestrada is one of the most inclusive, non-competitive sports in the world. People of all ages and abilities come together in performance teams that combine gymnastics, tumbling, dance and stunt moves into an entertaining spectacle. At the 2015 World Gymnaestrada in Helsinki, Finland more than 2,000 people performed together on a single field!
Our teams perform locally, nationally and internationally. DGS’s Senior team has been chosen to represent Canada three times at World Gymnaestrada events!
Last year Delta Gymnastics Society hosted the BC Gymnaestrada Event as part of our Best of the West trio of events. Both the Junior and Senior teams will be invited to perform at the Richmond Oval.
The Gymnaestrada Program has two teams:
- Our Junior team is for 7 to 10 year-olds. This team performs at local and provincial events.
- Our Senior team is for ages 11 and up. This team aims to perform at national and world events.
But I have no gymnastics or dance experience! It doesn’t matter. If you’re willing to commit to practices and learn in a fun, welcoming environment, you can be on our Gymnaestrada team. Our performances combine complex moves by some of our more advanced gymnasts, with simple moves from beginners. Everyone performs at their own level, but it all comes together into a cohesive performance that has made us one of the most entertaining teams to watch in the province!
Who is this program for? Anyone 7 or older, who loves to perform, can commit to regular team practices, and who wants to learn and practice basic gymnastic, tumbling and dance skills in a highly social and supportive environment. You must be able to travel with the team to performance destinations.
When do I register? The program runs from September to May/June, although exact start dates vary from year to year. Some years, performances may occur in the summer. Please contact the Program Coordinator prior to September for registration information.
How do I register? Please call our office, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Program coordinator emails can be found on the Our Staff page.
