Penfield Recreation is pleased to introduce a new program for youth - Rainbow Ribbons Aesthetic Group Gymnastics for boys and girls ages 4 – 10. Rainbow Ribbons will be held on Saturdays from April 29 through June 3 at Penfield Community Center. A session for ages 4-6 will be held from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm. A session for ages 7-10 will be held from 12:30 – 1:30 pm. Registration is available to Penfield residents and non-residents on our website.
The Rainbow Ribbons program is non-competitive, allowing children to explore the combined graceful art of music, dance, and gymnastics in a supervised, fun setting. The children will learn how to work and trust each other as a team in a pleasant, upbeat setting while they learn artistic routines. Equipment includes scarves, ball, hoops, and ropes.
Children will learn the basics of core strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, and rhythm. They will also learn body waves, swings, ballet, gymnastic jumps and leaps, and dance steps and leaps.
Aesthetic Group Gymnastics is relatively new to the United States and is brought to Penfield by Western New York Aesthetic Group Gymnastics (WNYAGG). The sport is known for its big and continuous body movement. It requires flexibility, balance, speed, strength, coordination, and a sense of rhythm.
Originally from Bulgaria, WNYAGG owner and Rhythmic Gymnast Miroslava Dimitrova has competed all over the world.
