The Club has been one of the leading forces in the positive development of Rhythmic Gymnastics in Canada, consistently producing Champions, National Team members and International Stars.

The Club draws athletes from across Canada and all over the world for camps and programs. In addition to the consistent production of excellence in competition, for the past 20 years the Club has partnered with the Cirque Theatre Company to produce original theatrical productions using a dynamic fusion of drama, dance, music, Rhythmic Gymnastics and acrobatics to relay captivating stories.

The Okanagan Rhythmic Gymnastics Club offers unique programs for ages 5+ that teach athletic skills, develop creative and artistic expressions and offer unparalleled opportunities for community and excellence.
