Gymnaestrada 2019

2019 WG logoFrom the 7th – 13th July 2019, a dedicated group of 10 gymnasts from our club (and 6 family members travelling as supporters) will be travelling to Dornbirn, Austria, the largest city in the region of Vorarlberg, for the 2019 Gymnaestrada.

  • Michael Herrmann
  • Blake Hampel
  • Austin Hampel
  • Carolyn Martin
  • Imogen Santos
  • Rebekah Thomson
  • Layne Fenwick
  • Abby Fenwick
  • Heidi James
  • Anastasia Kondoprias

They will be performing with gymnasts from all over the world in the world’s largest general gymnastics exhibition.

The World Gymnaestrada is held every four years. It includes group performances where adults and children of every age and description showcase their talent and the culture of their various countries. Choreography is designed both to challenge the participants and to delight audiences. Routines are performed at various venues within the host country.

A highlight is The World-Team, which is an international large-group performance in which gymnasts from all over the world can choose to take part. It is not connected with any one group, therefore all those who participate in the World Gymnaestrada can take part, even individuals. It includes 2 Rehearsals and 2 Performances – Dornbirn Special and Closing Ceremony. At Helsinki over 2,000 people took part in the World Team.

Apart from many trainings in our own gymnasium, the group will take part in a training camp with the rest of the Australian team, held immediately before the World Gymnaestrada from the 2nd or 3rd to 6th July 2015. The camp will be held close to Dornbirn. The purpose of the camp is to allow for all individual groups to come together as one Australian team; recover from long-distance travel and to rehearse routines.

We wish our team all the best as they prepare.
