Rhythmic Gymnastics Leotard for the star performance – Rhythmic Gymnastics and Fashion 

Rhythmic gymnastics is a very spectacular kind of sport, and the leotard is a part of the show. The rhythmic gymnastics leotard is always influenced by fashion, and fashion is cyclic and often repeats old trends. Now and again gymnasts appear on the carpet in a classic leotard for rhythmic gymnastics, or there’s fashion on small skirts made of netting or basic fabric. We will help you to make a really original choice that won’t simply follow fashion trends, but will fully correspond with the gymnast’s wishes and the content of her performance.

It’s always original to paint by paint or use applique work. Swarovski stones look very bright, though such decoration won’t be cheap. The master takes into account how the rhythmic gymnastics leotard will look in the distance, as if from the point of potential judges, and close by, to work through the details and total composition of the leotard at most. She will take into account the degree of comfort and will skillfully hide the drawbacks, underlining the gymnast’s advantages.

Rhythmic Gymnastics – Leotards for Champions! 

Before her performance, the gymnast and her coach work thoroughly through her performance. What the leotard will be like influences the completeness of the performance, the self-confidence of the gymnast. It might be more difficult to choose a design for a rhythmic gymnastics leotard than to make all the rest of preparations!

The basic Modlen collection is aimed at all the styles and genres of gymnast performances and practically any leotard may be recoloured into any other colour. But, nevertheless, ready-made leotards for rhythmic gymnastics don’t always match the image that needs to be created.

Thanks to our high-technology workshop and a high number of specialists in the sphere of leotard sewing, this problem is easy to solve! A rhythmic gymnastics leotard can only be sewn purely for the performance.

Several managers work at once with Europe, the USA and Australia, and answer to our clients’ urgent letters by email as soon as possible, working in a 24/7 mode. This allows to take decisions about the choice and the order of leotards as soon as possible.

The order of a low-cost leotard is carried out strictly by your measurements and additional wishes. It usually takes up to 4 weeks (in high season) to register your order, to sew and to send the leotard, but urgent sewing and delivery can speed up the receipt of your handmade product.

Luckily for gymnasts and designers, International federation for rhythmic gymnastics doesn’t restrict the decoration of leotards for rhythmic gymnastics at all. There are only several common rules that apply to moral standards.

For example, the lower point of a décolleté of a rhythmic gymnastics leotard should be in the middle of the chest. The most important thing is that the leotard should allow the gymnast to reveal herself in rhythmic gymnastics, shouldn’t bind movements and should allow the gymnast to feel absolutely free and confident.

   

Rhythmic Gymnastics is a Young Kind of Sport 

Rhythmic gymnastics, though it can sound strange today, is indeed a relatively young kind of sport. It came into the world thanks to Mariinskiy Theatre, or, to be more exact, to the ballet masters, who worked there.

It all began with the Higher School of Art Movement, that was opened in 1913 at the Higher Courses of the doctor of medicine , an outstanding pedagogue, biologist, anthropologist, doctor Peter Frantsovich Lesgaft. This person displayed great persistence , proving his education methods, that were mercilessly criticised at that time.

“All that is trained, is developed and improved, and what is not trained – decays.”
P. F. Lesgaft, MD, pedagogue, anthropologist.

Strange enough, but he considered all pedagogical processes and learning theory from the standpoint of anthropology. He perceived this science not only as knowledge of the structure, development and functions of certain organs of human body, but also as the influence of the environment on a human being, his physical and moral characteristics. Peter Frantsovich proved that the development of the body is directly influenced by exercises and environment. He fiercely argued against the prevailing in that time theory of pedagogics about the inheritance of aptitudes. If children are left without upbringing – he wrote – then however gifted their parents would have been, the children will not be able to show their potential. The human mind, he claims, is developed and improved under the influence of such factors as environment, education and training. The notorious “heredity” is often used by many teachers who wrote off their failures in shaping a child’s personality to their allegedly innate inability to be smart and talented, well brought up children.

His high school of artistic movement attracted many teachers who shared his views. Rosa Varshavskaya, Anastasia Nevinskaya, Elena Gorlova, Alexandra Semenova – Naypak. All they had taught different areas of gymnastics before, such as “aesthetic gymnastics” of the performing arts theoretician François Delsarte, or “free dance” of the great dancer of that time, the forerunner of modern, Isadora Duncan. Rhythmic gymnastics in its first manifestation was born from the merger of all these trends and styles.

George Demeny, a physiologist and a teacher from France, also contributed to substantiation of the value of physical culture in the education of girls. He proved that dynamic exercises, stretching and muscle relaxation exercises with objects and many other things contribute to the acquisition of a straight posture, agility and flexibility.

In 1923, under the leadership of Z. D. Verbovaya “The studio of plastic movement” was created. Its program included methods of another Frenchman, the founder of rhythmic gymnastics Jacques Dalcroze, the professor of the Geneva Conservatory. And if the first rhythmic gymnastics was used for the education of artists and musicians, later it was applied in the field of physical education.

Furthermore, the program of the “Studio of plastic movement” includes plastique, acrobatics, dance elements, floor exercise, anatomy. The studio prepared physical education teachers for secondary schools and colleges.
Gradually, the tool for education of children has grown in popularity, and slowly moved into the category of a kind of sport.

Rhythmic Gymnastics Competition Leotard (RSG) Young Sport

The first championship in rhythmic gymnastics, organized by the graduates and teachers of the school was held already in Leningrad, as it was in 1941. However, World War II brought about changes into the development of this area, and indeed of the whole Soviet sport.

However, on its completion gymnastics quickly rehabilitated. In 1945, the All-Union section of gymnastics was created, which became later the federation and in 1948 in the Soviet Union the first championship in this sport was held. The appearance of a single body allowed to determine the classification program and competition rules, the requirements for athletes. And then, gymnastics has evolved so quickly, covering such a great number of followers that it could only be envied.

Each year, the USSR championships, cups and children’s competitions are held. The gymnasts are beginning to demonstrate their favorite kind of sport outside of the USSR, leaving to France, Germany, Belgium, Yugoslavia and other countries.
Already in 1960 in Sofia, the first international meeting of rhythmic gymnasts was held, attended by Soviet, Bulgarian and Czekhoslocak athletes. Three years later the official international competitions already took place in Budapest, it was originally called the Cup of Europe. However, summing up, it was found that the participants of this tournament were athletes not only from Europe, and it was decided to call it the World Cup, and Ludmila Savinkova became the first champion of the world.

Turning point for gymnastics was 1980, when after the Olympic Games in Moscow, the Congress of the Olympic committee decided to include this kind of sport to the program of the next Olympic Games in Los Angeles. Lori Fung, a Canadian became the first Olympic champion.

So, rhythmic gymnastics – is performance of gymnastic and dance exercises with music , without any object, as well as with some objects. There are exercises with a rope, hoop, ball, mace and band. Today athletes do not act without any object at the world tournament . If they had acted with the piano music, orchestral soundtracks are used now. The exercises should take no more than four minutes.

Rhythmic gymnastics is one of the most spectacular kinds of sport, that values not only the abilities of athletes, but also their appearance. Rhythmic gymnastics competition leotards – are the topic for an entire article.

About Modlen Studio 

Modlen Studio was founded in the year of 2000. Its main work is competition leotards for sports and  rhythmic gymnastics, from sketching to sewing, as well as costumes for figure skating, dance costumes, evening and ball dresses, fancy dresses. Exclusive works, individual approach to each customer, creation of a harmonious image, huge portfolio of works and endless stream of new ideas — this is how you can briefly describe “Modlen”.

“Don’t worry if people steal your ideas. If your ideas are stolen, it means they work well”.
Howard Aiken, the scientist and the creator of the first computer.

Perhaps, the best way to prove the establishment of a person or a company — is to find out if their ideas are stolen. If they are, then they are successful! This means their ideas are indeed valuable ! Nobody would steal rusty iron, when the a bar of gold lies next to it. To accuse dull-witted thieves of plagiarism is the destiny of the weak. But the strong always find new ideas. So it is with Modlen Studio — just as soon as their leotards shine at competitions, you can see the copies, completely identical to the original, but of different quality and implementation. Well, let it be, after all, Elena Levitskaya, the founder of the the studio, will always find new ideas. Her rhythmic gymnastics leotards, as well as other costumes, shine again at the most prestigious competitions and championships.

You may ask: “Why rhythmic gymnastics and leotards?”. It’s quite a specific occupation. However, nothing in this world happens by chance. Firstly, Elena Levitskaya was herself involved in this kind of sport in childhood and, secondly, a friend asked her for help, when her daughter needed a leotard for a performance. Perhaps, but for Elena’s author’s approach, an innate sense of beauty and vast experience in the design and tailoring, that leotard could have been the first and the last one. However, the experiment was a success. Since then you can start the counting of history of Modlen Studio.

Nowadays gymnastics is one of the most popular kinds of sport that can also draw attention of public at large. The leotards for rhythmic gymnastics competitions are the different story, because an effective entrance of a gymnast, a brilliant costume, harmony throughout on a subjective level, influence judges’ assessment, one way or another.

There is another advantage — more and more children are attracted by rhythmic gymnastics, and leotards, with a right approach, can highlight the required merits of the figure and hide its demerits, because all children are different, you know. Drawings and applications, bearing a purely aesthetic function, actually make a good gymnast a great gymnast!

All models are developed individually, taking into account music and colors of sports equipment, with which the gymnast will perform. At times laborious and capacious days are needed to create a harmonious image, and  it can take about four thousand stones on the average to decorate a leotard!

“Sew with love” — this is the main principle of Elena Levitskaya. And it is felt in everything, especially in the number of regular customers from all over the world, from America to Australia. Modlen is known everywhere: in Canada, Europe, and even in such exotic countries as Gibraltar, Andorra, Malaysia, Singapore, New Zealand and in many others.

Your first Rhythmic Gymnastics Leotard – where to order 

Rhythmic gymnastics is a very bright, spectacular and feminine kind of sport! Everything attracts here — grace of sportswomen, bright leotards for rhythmic gymnastics, worldwide fame of champions, large-scale and interesting competitions, and healthy lifestyle! So there is absolutely no wonder why parents want to send their child to the classes as early as possible! Let us find out at what age it is better to start.

Champion’s age — when to enroll a child in a class?

Observant parents can notice a child’s inclination for this kind of sport at a very young age. For example, Alina Kabaeva, the Olympic champion in rhythmic gymnastics, started training at 3 years! According to her, her mother noticed the first signs of inclinations and brought her, at first, to an ordinary group where children trained rhythmic gymnastics in a playing form, or rather “played it” as Alina puts it. Such groups still exist and, no matter if there are any abilities, you can fearlessly take your child to such classes — kids dance a lot and play there.

Don’t hurry to leave your child at the first group you’ve come across — choose the best trainer, who will love his occupation and adore children!

The trainer should possess good psychology skills to understand the behavior of future gymnasts, which is often confusing for adults. Besides, such a teacher will offer exactly those games and activities that are to every kid’s liking in the group. It’s extremely important to cultivate love to this sport — the future champion will learn the discipline later, will develop his or her art to the unprecedented heights, overcoming tiredness, fighting the misfortunes... All that — later, and now the main thing is to learn to love rhythmic gymnastics! Perhaps it is worth following the example of Alina Kabaeva’s mother and taking your child to such playing classes as early as possible.

Serious sport — from the first exercises to the first competitions!

Already since 4-5 years kids are gradually loaded, and offered to surpass new and new heights of this sport, and not every child, having come across such tasks, would really want to reach the aim! Moreover, it is important to clarify the goals — if you just want to strengthen the child’s health, it is not necessary to take him or her to a professional school, but if you dream of the future champion’s title, you and your child should be morally ready for future difficulties.

USA, Denmark, Canada, and Australia — each of these countries has its own rhythmic gymnastics school, but exactly Russian roots are traced in most cases. Exactly the sportswomen from Russia, where the roots of rhythmic gymnastics were formed, are most often invited to head the national schools in certain countries. The same could be said of the leotards for competitions — all countries watch the order in which champions will appear, so that to order the sewing of a leotard at least in a few details similar to the champions’ ones.

Rivalry is very strong in this kind of sport — a high level of mastery had been reached long ago! Now champions demonstrate not just human, but superhuman abilities! Taking a child to the professional school of rhythmic gymnastics, artistic gymnastics or figure skating, parents should realize what a burden the future champion will have to carry on her fragile looking shoulders, and parents should support her in all possible ways.

Sewing the first leotard — when will that happen?

But what you can never reach in this sport is the unrestrained fantasy of designers, owing to which new and new models of leotards are born! You can order a leotard, with absolutely unique decorations, idea, or you can combine the ideas you like into one whole, and experienced masters at our studio will implement them in a new way. A rhythmic gymnastics leotard should suit not only the body of a sportswoman, but the music, the exercises, the mood of the sportswoman and her individuality!

Custom-made competition leotards — serious sport begins from them, when a future champion should be shown to a crowd in all the beauty, that’s why you ought to choose the leotard with all the seriousness. And the gymnast herself will feel much more confident, when all the spectators open their mouths because of her stunning looks. That is why you should never leave the choice of such an important element of the performance, as the rhythmic gymnastics leotard, for later, for more serious competitions. Let your child feel irresistible!

It’s absolutely not difficult to choose a custom-made leotard for order — you don’t even need to go for the fitting, if you are far away from the master. Watch the video, how to take measurements correctly, go through this simple procedure and send us the data of your shipping information and other. Modlen Studio is always happy to hear your desires about decoration and design of a leotard and is ready to offer original ideas to you.

How to avoid traumas in sport – comfortable leotards for rhythmic gymnastics! 

Rhythmic gymnastics — is one of the least traumatic kinds of sport. However, the injuries during trainings and performances are met even here. But we know the secrets of passing them over and being always at your best!

Before taking their children to a sports section, many parents ask themselves how traumatic one or another kind of sport is. What concerns rhythmic gymnastics, not so many researches have been carried out in this sphere, thus parents often have to rely on the opinion of their acquaintances, the opinion of other parents and their own results. Such researches were not held in CIS countries, so have the Austria, Switzerland, Germany, France or Italy figured out the statistics?

Artistic gymnastics — not as dangerous as yard games are!

Indeed, they have figured that out! Necessary researches were held in Italy, where the levels of traumatism among sportswomen and a general teenager group were compared. In total, around 80 gymnasts from 20 clubs of the country took park in the researches. Approximately the same numbers of teenagers were taken to the control group by the researchers. Every week a survey was held among the participants of the experiment with the purpose of trauma detection for the past seven days, and this lasted for 8 months!

When the scientists compared the results, they could not be named very surprised — artistic gymnastics have the reputation of a rather safe kind of sport. However, for the parents who care for safety of their children, these numbers will be useful: the coefficient of sustaining trauma among usual teenagers was by far higher than in the sports area! For a thousand hours of active rest there fell on the average 1.8 trauma while the gymnasts had 1 trauma in 1000 hours on the average.

Of course, in the same number of hours the gymnasts had almost 5 times more activity, so the number of injuries overstepped the analogous figure in the control group. But the conclusions you can make out of this — is that the gymnasts, being masters of their own bodies, traumatize more rarely. And taking into account how long the muscle memory keeps “remembrances”, you can speak boldly that even after finishing sports career, gymnasts will much easier avoid traumas.

Leotards for rhythmic gymnastics — the influence on the level of trauma gaining?

Unfortunately, the scientists didn’t find out how much the level of trauma gaining can be influenced by the outward appearance of sportswomen, and particularly, how the way they feel can be affected by the leotards for rhythmic gymnastics, sport acrobatics and figure skating.

However, even without researches we can claim — the child’s health also depends on comfortable and beautiful uniform!

The comfort of leotard usage permits the gymnast not to be distracted during the classes, and the appearance gives more confidence. The leotards for competitions possess special attention — neither of decorative elements should bother the gymnasts during the performance! You can order a comfortable leotard for daily training or for competitions at our internet-store, this could be an already existing model or a custom sewing of a leotard from zero, based on your ideas or sketches.

How to avoid traumas — lowering the risks to zero!

Parents should pay attention to the fact how often and what kind of trauma their child gets. The matter is that usual damages can turn into chronic ones. Lower limbs are the most liable for trauma — almost 40 % of all traumas fall on the ankle and on the foot. The shin and the knee joint, according to the researches, have around 20 % of traumas, 15 % — for the thighs and the hip joint. The third place in the complaints list belongs to the spine. The damages happen most often as a result of unsuccessful landings and during complicated springs.

The question how to lower the level of traumatism is absolutely logical. It turns out that the number of traumas is connected directly with the duration of stretching. An extra minute of stretching can lower the risk of damages for more than 10 %! The optimal time of stretching is considered by the scientists to be a 40-minutes procedure. Another factor that actually promotes getting traumas — is the length of classes. Every extra hour beyond the usual duration of training enlarges the risk by almost 30 %!
