Our WEE RG and FUNdamental programs provide introduction to rhythmic gymnastics incorporating acrobatic elements, dance movement sequences and basic manipulation techniques of hand-held rhythmic apparatus. Each week we focus on one or two different apparatus such as ball, hoop, rope, ribbon and scarf using games and music for active FUN. The session concludes with SHOW WHAT YOU KNOW day in the gym. Parents/family are invited to watch the class in progress, applaud the short performances presented by the class and take part in a mini- choreography along with their gymnast.
What is the difference between FUNdamental classes and Competitive program?
FUNdamental programs are the best choice for kids who are testing the sport see if they like it and the best choice for parents who do not want the expense, travel and time commitment involved with competitions. Fundamental programs will complete each session with the opportunity to perform in the gym for their families.
Additional performance opportunities for FUNdamental students are available: Spring show and Choreography Cup also held in Spring.
Extra rehearsals are provided for those interested in participating in these events. A costume fee may apply.
Intro competitive students work on a group routine for the purpose of competing the routine for at least one competitive event in the season usually CARGO's Time to Shine event held somewhere in RED DEER May/2019.
The time commitment is one day per week minimum.
More experienced/advanced competitive students learn one routine or more to compete as an individual and this year will also work on a competitive group routine. The time commitment is two days per week ideally. Access to additional training time is available for extra practice and individual training.
We also have a DEMO TEAM which this year will be traveling to AUSTRIA July 7-14th, 2019.
Participation in the activities of the CARGO Parents Society is recommended especially if you require extra help financially with lesson fees.
