Amazing gym!!! Coaches , Juliya and Vera are SUPER AWESOME!!! My daughter loves going there and always asks me after the class: " Mom, when is my next class ? Tomorrow, right? I can't wait" . That's really makes me happy, because we had absolutely opposite situation when we had been going to another gym. She was crying out loud every time we went there, even when I mentioned our previous place. Juliya is so great . She is very professional and talented coach. She is one of a kind! She knows her stuff and knows how to make girls do gymnastics through attention, thorough explanation, love and discipline. You can't even imagine how kids love her . You have to be born that way to have this trait to teach kids, not all coaches can do that. JULIYA AND VERA ARE THE BEST. There's safe and fun environment for little girls, as well. Classes with Ruzanna are super fun with strechening, games and dancing. The way the girls come into the gym saying a lot.They always smile , always! Grace gymnastics is not just a gym. It's a family that supports and care about every its member. We are really happy to be a part of this iAnnochka K: Los Angeles
I have been brining my daughter here for about a year now. She joined the level of her age group. My daughter played tennis , went to MMA classes , dance studio , soccer prior to joining Grace but did not really get into it for one reason or another. When she started at Grace Gymnastics I was really hoping she would like it and she sure did. She likes the company of girls , her wonderful coaches and overall atmosphere. She also enjoyed her first summer gymnastics camp at Grace this year. In this past year she learned so much , I'm very proud of her progress and she will be getting ready for her first completions next year. I really appreciate her coach Yulia's coaching style - discipline , praise, teaching responsibility and being strict when necessary. I definitely recommend Grace Gymnastics!Diana R.: Los Angeles
Grace Rhythmics is by far the best rhythmic gymnastics gym we ever tried. My almost 6 year old daughter tried a few other places but as much as she wanted to do rhythmic gymnastics, she was not comfortable at any of the gyms we tried. But as soon as we came for a trial class at Grace, something just "clicked" and she never wanted to leave. I believe its the atmosphere, the coaches and the approach to kids at Grace that makes her look forward to every single class. The coaches are very professional, experienced and good at what they do! They teach discipline, yet they are friendly with the athletes and encourage them to achieve their highest potential. Thanks to Grace, my daughter is developing much love for the sport, she's stronger, more flexible and her self esteem improved so much. We highly recommend Grace Rhythmics to all our friends and to anyone looking for their daughters to learn healthy habits, strength, confidence and grace.Ilen K.: Reseda. Los Angeles

Rhythmic gymnastics is a captivating fusion of ballet, creative movements, and the use of apparatus such as ribbons, balls, hoops, ropes, and clubs, all choreographed into a harmonious dance and tumble routine. Unlike artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics is performed exclusively on the floor and is underscored by a different style of music and routine. Both rhythmic and artistic gymnastics originated in Europe during the 18th century, initially forming a singular sport that eventually branched into two distinct yet closely related disciplines.
Rhythmic gymnastics emerged as a separate competitive sport in the 1950s, pioneered by the Russians. Its first World Championship was held in 1963, though it didn't become an Olympic medal sport until 1984, contributing to its lesser-known status in the U.S.
In the U.S, rhythmic gymnastics comprises six competitive levels, from level 3 being the lowest competitive level to level ten being the highest. Each level has specific compulsory routines, and from level seven, there's an option for a personalized routine.
The sport involves the use of various apparatus. The rope involves swinging, tossing, and balancing acts. The ribbon is used to create patterns like snakes, spirals, and figure eights. The clubs include swinging, trapping, and spinning actions. The ball entails rolling, swinging, and balancing, while the hoop incorporates rolling, swinging, and jumping routines. Lastly, the floor exercise, which is an open canvas for creativity.
Rhythmic gymnastics also includes group exercise, comprising four to five gymnasts performing a synchronized routine with the same or different apparatus. The routines, either individual or group, are performed to music that is restricted to 90 seconds for individual performances and 150 seconds for group performances.
As with any competitive sport, rhythmic gymnastics has a set of rules to follow, and deductions are made for non-compliance. The rules range from not stepping outside the marked area during a performance, to not wearing jewelry, or using a music with words for lower levels.
.Being a rhythmic gymnast is both challenging and rewarding. The key attributes include a positive attitude, unwavering commitment, disciplined practice, and confidence. A great gymnast is not necessarily the one consistently securing the first place but the one who displays relentless effort, dedication, and strives to meet these key attributes at every practice and meet.
