Rhythmic Gymnastics at 10 yrs old?
Hi, My daughter is 10 yrs old and has a desire to do Rhythmic Gymnastics. She is currently a gymnist and has been doing gymnastics from age 4 and she also took a year of ballet classes, but favored gymnastics more. She has been competing and is currently a level 5 gymnist. Is she too old to begin Rhythmic Gymnastics and are there any training facilities in the NY-NJ area that one could recommend for this sport? Thank you for your replies!!!!

She's not too old to start rhythmic gymnastics. It's good also that she also has artistic gymnastics experience and ballet - good combo for rhythmic gymnastics. From the Gym Chat gym listings directory for rhthmic-> in New Jersey area: http://www.gymchat.com/listings/index.php?cat=7&alpha=&city=&state=NJ&country= in New York area: http://www.gymchat.com/listings/index.php?cat=7&alpha=&city=&state=NY&country= Maybe someone from this area can recommend a good rhythmic gymnastics club. If not, visit some and watch the classes - afterwards talk to the coaches - you don't want them changing their procedures because they know a potential customer is watching. If it's a small club though, they might notice anyways lol. Also, the clubs that let you watch I would say are better. The ones that don't let you watch...make you wonder why not. Better to feel comfortable with a gym that lets you watch the classes.
