What is Calisthenics?

Calisthenics is an artistic sport that combines dancing, gymnastics, ballet and apparatus work.  It promotes great team involvement in a fun team-orientated environment.  The word calisthenics comes from the Greek words “kallos” for beauty and “thenos” for strength.  The components and requirements of the sport aim at achieving both of these attributes.

Calisthenics is truly a unique Australian dance sport which involves a team of participants learning routines choreographed to music and presenting these routines on stage at competitions and concerts. Pupils learn between five and six routines throughout the year.  It also fosters teamwork, friendship, social and emotional development as well as discipline.  In addition to teamwork, participants can also compete in solo and duo items as well as have the opportunity to represent the State in the National Titles.
