On Friday, 3 September Kirsten Fitschen took part in the Western Cape Provincial Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships in Somerset West and won gold in the U7 age group for Level 3. Well done, Kirsten! You also seem to be an excellent climber!


Rhythmic gymnastics combines ballet and creative movements to music, while working with ribbons, balls, hoops, ropes and clubs in a choreographed dance-and-tumble routine. It has a lot more dance than artistic gymnastics. Everything is done on the floor with far different routines and different music. It can be done individually or in groups.
