Welcome to the Carine Branch of the Calisthenics Association of WA. Calisthenics is Everything!!
Fun & Fitness....Singing....Dancing....Flexibility....Apparatus (Clubs & Rods)....Classical Technique....Gymnastic Movements....Social Interactions....Team Environment....Coordination. Calisthenics is a uniquely Australian Artistic sport.
Calisthenics involves a team of participants learning routines choreographed to music, incorporating elements of dance, gymnastics, singing, acting, marching, ballet, apparatus technique and performance skills.
As a sport, calisthenics improves coordination, mobility, balance, strength, flexibility and posture as well as fostering self-esteem and team spirit. As an art it encourages an appreciation of music rhythm, the celebration of movement and the excitement of performing on stage.
The Carine Calisthenics Club was founded in May 1977 by Pam Bartlett and her mother Wynn. In 2007 we celebrated 30 years as a Club with a Family Concert at Midvale and the girls performed beautifully for their families, friends and life members of the club. All members were given a 30 year celebration pin and a special photographic program which was donated by one of the girls parents.
