Central Alberta Rhythmic
CARGO (formerly Red Deer Rhythmic Gymnastics) has been offering rhythmic gymnastics instruction in the Red Deer area since 1991 beginning as a community program until a formal club was founded in 1994. CARGO is a member club of Rhythmic Gymnastics Alberta (RGA) and Gymnastics Canada (GCG). Our club is known for its caring coaches, creative instruction techniques and innovative choreography.
