About Rhythmic Gymnastics and Emerald City
At Emerald City Academy our mission is to provide girls the opportunity to:
- Participate in the unique, beautiful, and expressive sports of Rhythmic Gymnastics and Aesthetic Group Gymnastics
- Enhance athleticism, grace, and character while having fun, being challenged, and making new friends
- Compete at the highest levels of Rhythmic Gymnastics and Aesthetic Group Gymnastics
Emerald City Academy of Rhythmic Gymnastics promotes healthy lifestyles and character development in our students. We provide superb and elegant alternatives to traditional gymnastics, cheerleading and dance. Rhythmic gymnastics and aesthetic group gymnastics stress femininity, flexibility, creativity and artistry, and build strength, endurance and agility.
Since opening to the public in 2009, we have experienced remarkable success for our athletes and coaches. In addition to our recreational and Rhythmic Excel programs, our Junior Olympic rhythmic gymnastics competitive program has become home to many USA Gymnastics Elite Squad Members, State, Regional, and National Champions, fourteen (14) United States National Team members in rhythmic gymnastics and twelve (12) United States National Team members in aesthetic group gymnastics. Our Aesthetic Group Gymnastics Junior Team is ranked 7th in the World since 2017 and competed in World Cups and the World Championships in 2018.
At Emerald City we have a passion for rhythmic gymnastics and aesthetic group gymnastics. We believe that many excellent life lessons can be learned through these sports and that intellectual development can be enhanced through this simultaneous, multifaceted combination of movement to music, routine memorization and attention to detail. Since our program is really about personal growth, Emerald City supports participation of all ages and levels of commitment.
