SANDPOINT Sandpoint Parks and Rec is offering two types of gymnastics for local coeds ages 6-18 years-old from January through March.
Rhythmics is a beautiful activity that combines elements of ballet, gymnastics, dance and manipulation of five apparatus, including incorporating balls, clubs, hoops, ribbons and rope into skills and routines set to music.
Acrosport uses partners and groups working together to perform acrobatic skills of tumbling, lifts, balances, tosses and catches of partners in combination with dance. Gymnasts of all sizes are needed. Bases are bigger and strong. Tops are petite.
