Calisthenics allows our Inters to be more active, socialise, be creative and increase their self-confidence. Being in class together and competing on stage builds a strong bond between our Inters and the coaching staff. We encourage our girls to help assist in other sections which allows them to experience their love of calisthenics from a different perspective.
