Gymnaestrada is a unique form of participation in gymnastics by anyone of any age or skill level. It’s main focus is on mass participation and performance in gymnastics.
The goals of Gymnaestrada are to promote and encourage the growth of PLAY Gymnastics for All, inspire and encourage joy in exercise and to demonstrate the development of the participants.
In addition to performance opportunities at club and community events, Gymnastics BC hosts an annual BC Gymnaestrada each spring.
In partnership with a member club, the BC Gymnaestrada is the largest PLAY recreational gymnastics event in the province.
During the weekend, participants take part in workshops, activities and perform their routines.
There are also Western, Canadian and World Gymnaestradas held every four years.
In B.C. participants must be six years old by December 31 of the current season to participate in Gymnaestrada.
Gymnaestrada participants with GBC member clubs must be registered as individual participants with Gymnastics BC. This may include recreational, Interclub or competitive.
Several clubs integrate Gymnaestrada into their Interclub program and use it as their year-end performance show.
