Emerald City Academy of Rhythmic Gymnastics is a place for girls to develop life skills that they will keep with them forever. The organization and discipline they acquire at the gym will seep into their everyday life. Important values such as persistence and determination are rewarded and naturally reinforced as they are key to progressing at our Academy and succeeding in the sport. On top of it all, participating in rhythmic gymnastics helps girls to develop more beautiful physiques as well as a timeless grace that can stay with them throughout their lives.
Our staff is filled with highly skilled coaches including a former U.S. National Team Coach, a former Ukrainian National Team Member high level and national team international Rhythmic coaches (Russian, Bulgarian and Spanish), former international level rhythmic gymnasts, certified international judges as well as collegiate level artistic gymnasts, cheerleaders and competitive dancers. It is important to have a high level of instruction at a young age to instill a base of excellent technique and to avoid developing bad habits that are hard to correct later. We keep our instructor-to-student ratio small, so your child will receive significant personal attention.

We believe that many excellent life lessons can be learned through the sport and that intellectual development can be enhanced through this simultaneous, multifaceted combination of movement to music, apparatus handling, routine memorization and attention to detail embodied in the sport.
