Have you ever heard of Aesthetic Gymnastic?
I haven´t, so I was surprised to find a clip of a World Cup in 2008 with seven girls from Bulgaria doing something (like rhythmic gymnastic but without apparatus) called “aesthetic gymnastic”.
They are dancing perfectly & the choreography is amazing!
I did a little research. The International Federation of Aesthetic Group Gymnastics was founded in 2003 – Aesthetic Group Gymnastics (AGG) exists since 1996. In 2000, the first World Championships were held in Helsinki (FIN).
But what is AGG?
Here´s the “official” answer:
“Aesthetic Group Gymnastics (AGG) is a discipline of gymnastics based on stylized, natural total body movement. The sport involves harmonious, rhythmic, and dynamic movements performed with economical and natural use of strength. There is a natural flow from one movement to the next, as if each new movement is created from the previous one. All movements must be performed fluently, showing amplitude and variety in the dynamics and speed.”
