Performance Team *New for FalL

Our Carstairs Gymnastics Performance Team will participate in showcase events throughout the season (September to June). Our Performance Team performs gymnaestrada based group routines involving gymnastics, dance and movements for entertainment, in front of an audience.  

A gymnaestrada is not about competition. It is about providing an opportunity demonstrate gymnastics skills as part of a team performance. Performances are to music by groups of athletes; an opportunity for a team of athletes to represent their club and showcase their talents, creativity and love of gymnastics and dance. Entertaining routines of 5 minutes in length are performed by a group of athletes. Costumes, equipment, props and hand-held apparatus are all permitted. Choreography is only limited by one’s imagination.

Gymnaestrada is a celebration of how gymnastics is the foundation of all movement, and necessary for a strong and healthy lifestyle.

*Performance Team members are required to participate in a Can Gym or Speciality Class in conjunction with the Performance Team commitment. Performance Team practice is 1x per week and may require extra rehearsals closer to performances. Entrance into this program is by tryout and/or invitation only.
