Sterling Calisthenics

Pint-Sized Performers Strut Their Stuff

Australia’s unique take on calisthenics gives children and young adults of all ages the opportunity to get up, dress up and show the world what they’ve got.

What is calisthenics?

Taken from the Greek words for ‘beauty’ and ‘strength,’ calisthenics originated in the ancient world as a form of exercise that focuses body weight training and aerobics. In Australia, calisthenics have evolved into a multi-faceted performance sport incorporating elements of dance, gymnastics and theatre.

There is a strong emphasis on competition, with participants dressing up in beautiful costumes and getting on stage to compete against other calisthenics troupes about 3-5 times in a year. Performances are set to music and include a range of elements including marching, rod and club swinging, ballet and other dance styles, gymnastics, singing and acting.

The perfect sport for budding performers

Calisthenics is an excellent choice for children who love to sing, dance and dress up. It offers a varied range of techniques and styles, overlapping different genres, making it perfect for the child who can’t choose between dance, gymnastics and stage performance. With classes catering for ages 2-26+, it is truly a sport that any child or young adult can get involved in.  Participants benefit from the teamwork, friendships and self-confidence that calisthenics helps to develop, as well as improved strength and flexibility.
