Transcript of Rhythmic Gymnastics

Rhythmic Gymnastics What is rhythmic gymnastic (RG)? Well it is a combination of elements from ballet, gymnastics, dance and apparatus manipulation to create an amazing routine. There are two different ways to preform these routines, individual or team. For the individual one, a routine has only one of the following apparatus; hoop, clubs, ribbon, rope, ball and freestyles which is called floor. Equipment For rhythmic gymnastics you need a ball, clubs, hoop, rope, and ribbon. Those are only your apparatuses that you need to compete. There are other things you need such as; Rhythmic Gymnastics Shoes These shoes are used to help to do turns. With that said, if you didn’t wear these shoes, you could brake or twist your toes really badly which will not allow you to do this sport. Leotards The leotards at first were full body expect in 2011 they only have a little shirt with/without leggings with designs on them. Hair Bun The hair always must be in a hair bun since it could get in your face or tangled up in your apparatus in you let it down or keep in a normal pony tail. Competition Places The place where the competition my take place need to have a 13 meter square floor with a 50 cm border. The border is usually red tape placed around the floor. It is used to show the competitors the are they could compete in and if they go outside this line, they have points taken away. Also, the ceiling height must be at least 8 meter and the maximum 12 meters. This is because the apparatuses are thrown very high up. Deductions As in every sport, there are different deductions of the points. In rhythmic gymnastic the rules are very harsh. With that said, every time you don’t fully complete an element you have points taken off. Also, if you loose your balance, loose your apparatuses, and set out of the boarder line those also decreases your points. Now these are the most hardest ones; you must always simile during your entire performance, you can’t make anything look to difficult, you always have to point your toes, never have bent knees, make sure your shoes don’t fall off, or any object from you/ your leotard. Floor The floor routine is where you could get very creative. There are a certain amount of element that need to be preformed otherwise you could have as much fun with creating the routine as you can. Ball In the ball routine you perform elements which only could be done with a ball. Also, the ball has to have a diameter from 18-20 cm and must weight more than 400 grams. The ball that is used in rhythmic gymnastic is rubber and it could have any design on it, (solid colors or mixture of colors.) Clubs Clubs are a unique apparatuses to use. They could be plastic (which make more sound and hurt more if it hits your head) or rubber covered ones (they don’t make as much sound and they hurt less if it hits your head.) The club’s length must be 40-50 cm and weigh at least 150 grams. A secret that can be used to decorate the clubs since they are white is to use the hoop tape on your clubs and then cover them with tape so it doesn’t come undone. In addition, unlike all of the apparatuses, you have to have two clubs to compete unlike the other object which are only one. http://www.ancore-chiou.com/home-new1.jpg http://cdn.wn.com/ph/img/3e/69/f5f8956e1f812ca774c5114e50fd-grande.jpg http://www.ribbonsandballs.com/image/14487183.jpg http://www.ararat.org/images/store/store_rhythmic_gymnastic_shoes.jpg http://www.olynstone-rg.com/11.jpg http://i.ehow.co.uk/images/a06/df/ej/hairstyles-

Also it has to weight at least 300 grams. In addition, the hoops are usually white when you first buy them. With that said, there is special colorful bright tape to wrap around the hoop to make it match your leotard and this also helps get that requirement of 300 grams. http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2009/09/10/gal_gymnastics_03.jpg Ribbon Ribbons are ribbons, they are almost the same as those that little children like to play with. Except in rhythmic gymnastics, they are made from silk or polyester and must be at least 6 meter for the elite gymnasts. The ribbon must weight 35 grams. Also, the stick/cane to which the ribbon is attached to must be at least 50-60cm in length and 10cm in diameter. The connection piece between the ribbon itself and the cane must not be more than 7cm. In addition, the ribbons are white also and there is special ribbon dye which you could use to make original designs and they are great for blending colors together. http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/olympics/images/attachement/jpg/site1/20080823/0013729c05180a1a60a017.jpg Rope The rope routine is usually the fastest routine that is preformed. For this routine the rope must either be hemp or synthetic material and the length are individual for each gymnast. The thickness of the rope is also optional, and the ends of the rope must be tied in knots. Lastly, the rope can be any solid, visible color. http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/11JFcTEAmUw/Olympics+Day+13+Rhythmic+Gymnastics/6psRGkPh9G4/Evgeniya+Kanaeva Levels and Titles Lastly, as each sport Rhythmic Gymnastics has its own levels. They also have titles or how the RG Committee calls them, Brackets. The following slides are the description of each level and title. Levels Levels 1-4: are beginner and you use all of the apparatuses. Level 6: is another competitive level except the competitor only could use the floor and three other apparatuses that the J.O. Committee picks. Level 8: a level in which the element’s difficulty only could be A, B, C, and if it goes higher then D the points don’t count and you still have to use floor and three other apparatuses. Level 9 JR: is considered Junior Level and it has FIG 4 isolated and 4 combinations and the apparatuses are chosen by FIG. Level 10: this level is only for those competitors who made National Championships from Level 9. Titles or Brackets Novice: Children’s age before 8.

Child: Children who’s age is is between 9 and 11.

Junior: Ages between 12 and 14.

Senior: Ages 15 and older. Thanks for watching hoped you learned a lot about rhythmic gymnastics. Each routine consist of leaps, balances, pirouettes (pivots), flexibilities, apparatus handling, execution, and artistic effect that are judged by the judges. The harder the element the more value of points, if only completed correctly. Then all of the points are added together and who ever has the most points wins. Except, there isn’t only one routine and no choice of apparatus either. With that said, each year, the judges pick four apparatus. Each of the athletes complete four routines. On the other hand, there are also team routines which consist of 2-6 gymnasts who work together using 1 or 2 of the same kind of apparatus. In addition to that, if you either end before or after your music for your routine, you can’t have an ending facing the crowd and not the judges, your apparatuses never could get tangled up during your performances, and you can’t forget to raise your hand when you enter and leave the floor these are all deductions too. Lastly, you could never let your apparatuses not be in motion for more then 30 seconds, if it is, that element doesn't count. Level 5: are competitive level and you only could use the floor and three other apparatuses chosen by coach. Level 7: Highest competitive level with floor and three other objects. Level 9 SR: is a senior level and it allows up to 10 combinations and the apparatuses once again are chosen by FIG. Level 10 Elite: this only for the top 12 competitors in the National Team.
