Rhythmic gymnastics is a sport event in which gymnasts perform on a floor with a rope, hoop, ball, clubs or ribbon. Many people find it more an art then sports because it incorporates elements from classical ballet. The elegance of the ballet and drama of the theatre combined with the grueling athleticism of gymnastics often leaves the viewers breathless.
