An artistic sport with close ties to both classical dance and gymnastics that is performed predominantly by women. Five apparatuses can be used by competitors: the rope, the hoop, the ball, the clubs, and the ribbon. Competitors attempt to keep their apparatus constantly in motion. In competition, routines are judged by officials according to their artistry, execution, and level of difficulty. Competitors participate in individual or group events, which are made up of teams of five gymnasts.
