Calisthenics - what a weekend!

I've shared a little about Calisthenics in a previous post (a beautiful sport). Julia (Miss Four-and-a-half) loves Calisthenics. She enjoys going to practice with her team every week and she practices at home every day.

On the weekend her team placed first overall in their ACT Preliminary Competition, with places in every discipline - free exercises, rods, aesthetics and folk & character dance. What a fantastic achievement for all the girls!

It was so wonderful watching these little girls performing on the stage. All the teams put so much effort into their performances, and it was easy to tell that they were all enjoying their day.

I am so proud of my gorgeous girl! Here is Julia in her costume for the folk & character dance - A Pirate's Life. She is demonstrating her very best pirate face and arrrrrr!

Her coach Kirsty is such an inspiration, and has chosen brilliant music and choreographed tremendous routines for the girls. Kirsty's energy and care are so very much appreciated - especially by this Mum!

Huge thanks must go to Kirsty and team assistants Chelsea, Sam, Caitlyn and Jess, team manager Nicky, and everyone else who again put so much work into making the day such a success for all the girls.

If you'd like to find out more, please take a look at Calisthenics ACT if you are in Canberra like me, or Calisthenics Australia for more information about Calisthenics in other states.
