Singapore’s leading rhythmic gymnastics club.
Rhythmic Gymnastics is the perfect combination of sport and art, linking expressive dance steps with skilful manipulations of the ball, rope, ribbon, hoop or clubs: throw, spin, spiral, roll and catch. Accomplished rhythmic gymnasts benefit from perfect posture, a toned figure, flexibility and graceful movement.
Rhythmic Gymnastics is not just enjoyed by those at an early age but also by Adults too. For those always wanting to try Rhythmic Gymnastics at a young age but never got the chance or those wanting to give something different than the normal fitness classes, this class is for you. Focusing on developing and exercising your sense of creativity through your body, Rhythmic Gymnastics will keep your body flowing and improve your posture.
Each class is 60 to 90 minutes and begins with a gymnastic warm-up and then moving into stretching and strength exercise, acrobatic and dance elements and then cardio and endurance training
Since young i’ve always wanted to take up Rhythmic Gymnastics but there wasn't many option to choose from. I searched everyone and finally found KGA to be the first to offer this class for Adults in Singapore.

Q. How does Rhythmic Gymnastics differ from Artistic Gymnastics?
Rhythmic gymnastics is a women-only sport, while artistic gymnastics can be performed by both male and female. Aside from that, rhythmic gymnastics involves music and the use of dynamic props (e.g., ribbons, balls, hoops, etc.), while artistic gymnastics is not accompanied by music and involves the use of static props (e.g., beams, vaults, bars, etc.).
Q. What should my child wear?
The standard attire is black leotards and shorts. We will provide one set for every child upon enrolment of a semester of classes. For trials children can wear anything that is not too restrictive and allows them to move freely.
Q. is there an age limit for new members?
KGA students are aged 4 and above, and we cater to all levels of gymnast. It is never too late to start doing any kind of sports and we work with kids to help them improve and learn whether they are taking part to compete in competitions or just doing rhythmic gymnastics for fun and fitness.
