As a rhythmic gymnast, I found myself on the floor from a very early age. My name is Svetlana Or Tokaev. I am formerly a rhythmic gymnastics competitor in the World Championships and the Olympic Games. Today, I am a private rhythmic gymnastics instructor at Or Tokaev in Los Angeles, CA.
Rhythmic gymnastics is one of many gymnastic disciplines. Only women compete in this sport. There are five separate routines, using five different apparatus—ball, ribbon, hoop, clubs, and rope. This sport combines elements of ballet, dance, and gymnastics. A great deal of strength, coordination, flexibility and balance are needed to manipulate the apparatus, while at the same time, performing incredible body movements.
In this sport, the ages eligible to compete are split into two groups. There are the juniors, under sixteen years of age by birth year, and the seniors, age sixteen and older. Gymnasts at their peak year of performance are typically in their late teens to their early twenties.
In competition, scoring is based on three elements—artistry, such as choreography and music, difficulty in the moves, and execution. The first two elements’ scores are averaged and then added to the third element to get a final score. The routines are scored out of a possible 30 points.
Not everyone wants to compete. Some girls and young women have a desire to learn rhythmic gymnastics without the competitive edge. Whether your goal is to compete in international competitions or to simply perform in local public performances, I offer private rhythmic gymnastic training.
