Rytmika Elite Team

Rytmika Elite Team is the elite-level Aesthetic Group Gymnastics team of the gymnastics club Rütmika based in Tartu, Estonia.

Aesthetic Group Gymnastics (AGG) is a women’s sports discipline which became internationally known in 1996, when the first international AGG tournament was held in Finland. Over the years, the harmonious and rhythmic movements have been replaced by exciting and complicated combinations as well as series of body movements, elements requiring mastery (jumps, balances, turns), collaborations, and impressive lifts. Top teams that can show the audience an extraordinary performance are met with thunderous applause during competitions.

Rytmika Elite Team is the elite-level AGG team of the Tartu-based gymnastics club Rütmika.

In 2018, the girls were competing in the junior category under the name VK Rütmika Junior Team. The team had a very successful season, winning a bronze medal at the last Challenge Cup competition. In final ranking of the competition series, the team scored a podium finish as well, achieving an excellent third place behind teams from Russia and Finland. The successful competition season, which took the team to exciting destinations such as Finland, Austria, Hungary, France, and Brazil, will be remembered for a long time by the whole team.

In 2019, the team is competing in the Senior category or at the elite level under the name Rytmika Elite Team. The choreography has again been made by Antton Laine (Finland), who is an internationally recognised choreographer.
