The word calisthenics comes from the Greek words ‘kallos’ for beauty and ‘thenos’ for strength. Indeed, the components of the sport aim at achieving those physical attributes, but the sport also influences the emotional and social development of girls and boys through friendship and teamwork. Calisthenics is an artistic sport unique to Australia. It combines dance, gymnastics, singing, apparatus manipulation and ballet, and is performed in theatres. It involves a team of pupils learning routines choreographed to music – each of about three to four minutes in duration – and presenting those routines on stage. Pupils learn approximately six routines concurrently throughout a year and this is where the diversity of the sport is seen. Sport or Art? – Calisthenics can be categorized as both. As a sport it encourages physical development, co-ordination, self-discipline, and team-spirit. As an art it develops an appreciation of music and rhythm, the beauty of dance, and the excitement of performing. (Meet in W-11, Studio B)
