What is Aesthetic Group Gymnastics?

Aesthetic Group Gymnastics (AGG) is a mix of rhythmic gymnastics, artistic gymnastics, acrobatics, dance, and ballet. The teams of aesthetic group gymnastics compete in groups of 4 gymnasts for short program and of 6-12 gymnasts for long program. AGG does not use any apparatuses like other types of gymnastics do. Aesthetic Group Gymnastics includes flexibility, balance, strengths, coordination, sense of rhythm where each movement is emphasized in flow, aesthetic and expressive appeal. AGG focuses on simultaneity and uniformity.
