The Calisthenics Skills Program is designed to allow girls to develop fitness, flexibility, co-ordination, rhythm and musicality. It encourages correct deportment and poise and at the same time promotes self-esteem and self-discipline. Pupils are examined on a test or a grade suitable to their age.
For pupils wishing to participate in solos, duos and/or gracefuls for 2021, they must have attained specific levels within Calisthenics Skills.
Girls looking to participate in our Cadet Coaching Program need to be actively participating in calisthenics skills and have achieved Grade 1 prior to commencing as a Class Demonstrator and Grade 3 to be a Cadet.
