Teaching Rhythmic Gymnastics since 1980
Rhythmic Gymnastics is a beautiful and elegant sport demanding strength, flexibility, agility, coordination and a combination of technical precision and artistic creativity. Apparatuses include ball, hoop, ribbon, rope and clubs. Ritmika Rhythmic Gymnastics Club, founded in 1980 by Annely Riga and Siina Kasekamp, is one of the largest and leading rhythmic gymnastics clubs in Canada. With over 30 years of experience, Ritmika has grown into a multicultural gymnastics Organization offering rhythmic gymnastics programs for all ages and ability levels taught by certified coaches.
From 3-Year-old Tiny Tots to Adults
In our recreational program, the basics of rhythmic gymnastics and basic apparatus techniques are taught in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. The emphasis is on improving strength, balance, coordination, and flexibility. Each year gymnasts look forward to demonstrating their accomplishments by performing for family and friends at Ritmika’s spectacular Annual Year End shows. Besides Ritmika Centre facility, recreational programs are also offered in partnership with Vaughan and Richmond Hill Parks and Recreation departments at their community centres and in private schools as part of extracurricular activities.
Elite Rhythmic Gymnastic Training
Elite performance programs offer the more advanced gymnasts the opportunity to further improve their skills and techniques. Advanced level skills are choreographed into enjoyable performance numbers requiring countless hours of practice. Acceptance to these groups is usually by tryouts. Gymnasts in these groups train intensively, learn to work with each other as a group and perfect several routines each year. The Elite gymnast requires a greater commitment but in return they enjoy the privilege of representing Ritmika and Canada in many local and International events.
