GYMNAESTRADA: 7 to 70+ yrs

Gymnaestrada is a unique form of participation in gymnastics inclusive of all ages or skill levels. It is an element of Gymnastics for All that is a performance based non-competitive activity involving a combination of dance, acrobatics, and gymnastics, with or without apparatus. Gymnaestrada’s focus is on mass participation in gymnastics and the goals are to promote and encourage joy in exercise and to demonstrate the development of the participants.

Provincial Gymnaestrada events are held annually, and Western, National, and World Gymnaestradas are held in a 4-year cycle. The World Gymnaestrada is the International Gymnastics Federation’s largest event with over 21,000 participants worldwide and takes place every four years typically in Europe.
