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.
Royal South Street Society’s Australian Calisthenics Competition is one of the largest competitions in the country, attracting clubs from WA, SA, NSW, ACT, QLD and of course Victoria.
All teams competing must adhere to The Australian Calisthenic Federation Rules, which are the standard for all competitions and items throughout Australia. The Royal South Street Society is exempt from The Victorian Rules and the Guideline for Team/Solo Competitions as set by CVI.
Please note as from 1st Jan 2019 the following changes apply to ACF Rules and Regulations – Age Changes and New Banned Movement for 2019
Calisthenics combines two Greek words, ‘kallos’ meaning beauty and ‘thenos’ strength and both attributes are very much required when competing.
