First!

This thread will probably start to die down now, with Calisthenics well and truly over.

second

Yes very true we had our end of year concert on Sunday just gone. Our break up picnic is this Sunday and then it is all over unitl the middle of Jan when I have decided I am running a summer school for the last 2 weeks of the school holidays.

I have already sorted some of my routines for next year. In S.A subbies have folk so I have been looking through youtube  for folk dances and have decided on highland dancing. (there are how to highland dance vids on youtube)

I have also had 6 girls ask me to teach them private lessons next year so I will sit down soon and go through a heap of music for those girls to give them each a cd with music on them to choose a song from for their solos.

Hi everyone

I am interested in putting my dd's into Calisthenics...I have done a bit of research and think it will be much better for both of them long term than dancing and gym. Plus I love the theatrical element to it!

Ella is 10 and Maddi is 7. We are in WA.  Ella has been doing gym & ballet since she was 5 and Maddi since she is 3. They are both quite flexible and very competitive (especially Ella!).

Any suggestions on what team to join?

Thanks in advance xxx

Is there anyone that can recommend a group that offers what I'm after?

With school going back I like to be organised asap with activities because they usually all start at once!!

lilaestelle~ most of the Cali clubs in WA are the same for the younger years, some are A or B grade clubs but they usually have a few teams in each division so it goes on age and ability so I would go the club closest in your area and have a few free sessions and see what your girls think, you can see the Cali WA web Page here.

Our AGM is coming up in Feb, after we have started back, I was asked to be a Liason Mum but the mum from last year has decided to keep her position so I think I might go with fundraising. Last year I helped with costumes, sequining all those aestetic dresses!! But I am now working FT so will have to get organised!

Cate's also going to do Rhythimic Gymnastics as well as Cali and Swimming but swimming just for term 1. A few mums have said they are not going to start untill term 2 to allow swimming to finish and to save the girls getting bored? Normally (for us) Term 1 is skill fun, seeing where the girls are at, getting to know one another...and term 2 learning the dances, term 3 routines over and over, costumes and concert, term 4 skills training and wind up.

Should we start a Cali Roll call for the 1st post?

thanks hummingcat!


We live in Padbury so it looks like we could be going to West Coast Calisthenics Club - they train in that suburb! (well the group that Maddie would be in & Warwick isn't too far away for Ella). Can anyone give me some feedback on this club? Or send me a pm about it - what it's like, coaching methods, club focus etc if they don't want to put it on here??

DD is also looking forward to going back to calisthenics in a couple of weeks.It will also be interesting to see how many subbies there will be this year in her club. A few have moved to Juniors and only 2 come up from Tinies. I haven't seen anything advertised yet either.

maurie- do you know what section your subbies are in this year? Ours are in the same still.

DD was going to do summer school but today we had a funeral (FILs) and tomorrow we are getting our pergola finished. So I think we will just skip it. DD didn't know we were doing it she she won't know any different.

Hi Nicole  waves.gif our subbies have dropped to Div 4 this year, I've never seen the other clubs in this div, so it should be interesting.

When does everyone go back to their dancing clubs? DD goes back tomorrow after school, she is so excited. She really didn't practice as much as she should have over the holidays though.

Hi everyone

I'm not sure when our classes start back, will have to check. We where seriously considering swapping clubs, but I think we'll end up staying because the other club is quiet a bit more expensive and being championship do Ballarat comps. With bub #6 due in June, DH working Sundays and me at uni, not sure now is a good time. We might seriously look at it next year though.

I've only heard rumours, but it sounds like there are huge fights happening, the girls coach from last year quit tinies and then decided to quit Subbies too. Then we found out their new coach, but she's now only going to be there half the time with her assistant the rest. Then I heard she had a fight and left too  wacko.gif. I'm keeping my fingers crossed the assistant just gets the job, she's who got the Subbies into Div 3 and she's absolutely lovely.

My kids are still at little aths and they are at the same time so we'll only be making it until aths finishes if it's a twilight, it rains or manages to finish before calisthenics does.

Adrian's also decided to do something else rather than calisthenics, which TBH suits me fine. 3 sets of costumes is more than enough to make. He's decided to do a kids fit classes at our local gym (kids version of what DH does lol).

Well girls are back, it's there second week. They have bring a friend day next week, I think it's much smarter doing it at the start of the year rather than at the end. There are 10 girls, I'm hoping they get enough for 2 teams, 14 would be great as the second team could just have 6 and they'd loose 5 point, but who cares, just as long as they all get a shot at being on stage and a routine they can handle.

Subbies only have 5 girls, so no idea what they are going to do, yet Juniors have 20  oomg.gif.

They have 2 coaches this year who will be alternating weeks by the looks of it, they seem pretty organised though, they have already started their routines. Usually we have no idea what they are doing until the start of April.

Where is everyone?  unsure.gif

I took dd to a new club last week, she was a bit  nno.gif and  cry1.gif beforehand but was pretty much  tthumbs.gif by the time the class was over.   Looks like she and 2 of her teammates from last year will be very happy there with 8 other girls  ddance.gif .  That's right 11 girls so far, yippeeeee, a full team!

Did anyone buy the calisthenics sticker book? (Not sure if it is just a Vic thing or not). DD love sit as it is an incentive to practice to get stickers.

Hi Nicole,

I think it's tough times for calisthenics this year, our old club has lost a ton of members this year (that's mainly why we left too) and I've heard a new club has opened just up the road, they have even less than our old club.

At our 'new' club the girls get the sticker book when we pay their registration.
