Calisthenics inf lux set for Horsham
Competitors from across Victoria and interstate will gather in Horsham this weekend for Horsham Calisthenics College’s 38th annual competition.
The event will start with solo presentations on Friday, continue with sub-junior and junior teamwork categories, with a special display by the Horsham tinies, as well as solos on Saturday and finish on Sunday with intermediate and senior team performances.
The large gathering of competitors will go through their routines at Horsham Town Hall. It is the third time the competition has been in the redeveloped arts centre.
Horsham College teams have already enjoyed success at competitions across the state.
An intermediate team travelled to Melbourne for calisthenics state championships at the weekend and won a reserve aggregate award.
This followed the college’s junior team, which also won a reserve aggregate trophy, at a Barwon competition in Geelong.
Australian calisthenics is a competitive artistic dance sport involving a variety of stage disciplines.
It had its origins on the Ballarat goldfields.
