Your child will train weekly throughout the school year with their teammates to perfect routines performed on stage at two annual team competitions and our annual concert. These are usually held in term three. All costumes are supplied by the College.

Classes usually finish around the end of November. See our 2019 Calendar of events and browse the following pages for information on the age groups we cater to, our training times and the equipment required.

Opportunities for further involvement

We are proud to encourage all of our members to compete on an individual level in graceful solos, solos and duos in addition to their team commitments. Not only is it enables girls to improve their skills through one-on-one time with a qualified coach.

Solos, duos and graceful solos

While primarily a team sport, your child can compete in solo or duo routines with their friends.  Depending on your child's age and interest, they may take part in one to five extra solo and duo events during the year.

Calisthenic skills exams

At the end of the year your child may choose to participate in the Australian Calisthenic Federation (ACF) Skills Program. The program is similar to the RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) ballet examination system and involves pupils demonstrating sound calisthenic technique for an examiner.

This is a short practical exam taken every one to three years, and only after pupils have been adequately prepared by coaching staff.  The complete range of the ACF Calisthenic Skill Syllabus videos are available to view on YouTube. For more information go to the Calisthenic Association of Western Australia (CAWA) website.

Calisthenic Association of Western Australia State Team

This year our college is proud to have two State Team representatives in the Junior section. All current CAWA members will be invited to attend State Team workshops and can trial for the team. The trials are generally held in November. This year the ACF National Championships will be held in Perth!
