Westside Rhythmic Gymnastics
Rhythmic gymnasts perform jumps, tosses, leaps and other moves with different types of apparatus on the floor (rope, ball, hoop, clubs and ribbon) and are judged more on their grace, dance ability, and coordination than their power or tumbling prowess.

Physical abilities needed by rhythmic gymnasts include strength, flexibility, agility, dexterity, power and endurance. In the group event, athletes also develop teamwork, sensitivity and quick adaptation. Rhythmic gymnastics was added as an Olympic sport in 1984.

The Westside Rhythmic Gymnastics Competitive Team begins at Level 4.   We currently have team members in Level 4 through Level 9. 

Coach Wuling is very experienced and well-loved by the team.  She is recognized as the first person to obtain a Masters degree in Rhythmic Gymnastics in China. She spent 9 years as a US National Team Coach, and was also an International Rhythmic Gymnastics judge.  She has been coaching Rhythmic Gymnastics in the Portland area for 26 years. She has produced many Junior and Senior National team members and National Champions during her coaching career. She has consistently supported Rhythmic Gymnastics through coaching and judging in our region and is an integral part of this sport's community in the region and in the nation.

Coach Shauna also has valuable experiences in both rhythmic gymnastics and ballet dance, which enables her to become a great coach for the team. Besides being a rhythmic gymnastics coach, she is also the ballet teacher for our rhythmic gymnastics team, and makes routines for team members to go to competitions.
