Rhythmic gymnastics is an Olympic sport that combines elements of ballet, acrobatics, contortion and creative movements to music, while working with ribbons, balls, hoops, ropes and clubs in a highly choreographed dance-and-tumble routine.
Each movement of a rhythmic gymnastics routine involves a high degree of athletic skill, body and equipment mastery. Physical abilities needed by a rhythmic gymnast include strength, power, flexibility, agility, dexterity and endurance. In the group event, athletes need to develop teamwork, sensitivity, quick adaptation and anticipation, in addition to the aforementioned skills.
Because each piece of apparatus is so different in its composition, the athlete must coordinate very difficult body movements with the apparatus elements.
