No. I wish! I'm really flexible, and I've always wanted to try it, but the only place close is Salto and they charge a lot of money!

There is only one place in San Diego that I know of for rhythmic...it's very specialized.

gracefulone...you must live close to the town I grew up in. It's a little town called Union Grove, my parent's and brother still live there. I started at a club in Racine call Peppermint (Racine Gymnastics Center)...then I moved to Harbor Club Gymnastics (out of business). I competed Region IV for 10 years. My coach works at Midwest Twisters now.

I don't think it's that popular. Maybe because of the required extreme flexibility, a lot of which is natural, although it can be learned w/ much persistance.

My club back home, Jewart's Gymnast (team name: Pittsburgh Northstars) has a rhythmic team. Our coach is a Bulgarian national champ as well as a world competitor and what not. The program started small, but after 3 years she's got over 20 kids on her team! We also have mens and women's artistic. I loved working with them and watching them--they're amazing gymnasts.

Rhythmic is not easier than artistic! I agree, that artistic has more strength, but if you came to one of my training sessions you would see how hard it is, not to mention the extreme hand eye co-ordination that is needed.

Our gym has the three types of gym, Men's Artistics, Women's Artistic and Rhythmic. So everyone in our gym pretty much knows about all the types.
