Calisthenics is an artistic sport which has an Australia wide competition base. It combines dance, gymnastics, singing, apparatus manipulation and ballet, performed in theatres all across Australia including Ballarat’s historic Her Majesty’s Theatre.

Royal South Street’s CommBank Calisthenics is one of the largest competitions in the country attracting clubs from WA, SA, NSW, ACT, QLD and of course Victoria.

Calisthenics combines two Greek words, ‘kallos’ meaning beauty and ‘thenos’  strength and both attributes are very much required when competing.
